Function core.thread.osthread.thread_setThis

Sets the current thread to a specific reference. Only to be used when dealing with externally-created threads (in e.g. C code). The primary use of this function is when Thread.getThis() must return a sensible value in, for example, TLS destructors. In other words, don't touch this unless you know what you're doing.

extern(C) void thread_setThis (
  Thread t
) nothrow @nogc;


t A reference to the current thread. May be null.
