Initializes a once synchronization control structure.
Threads Library (libpthreads.a)
static pthread_once_t once_block = PTHREAD_ONCE_INIT;
The PTHREAD_ONCE_INIT macro initializes the static once synchronization control structure once_block, used for one-time initializations with the pthread_once subroutine. The once synchronization control structure must be static to ensure the unicity of the initialization.
Note: The pthread.h file header file must be the first included file of each source file using the threads library. Otherwise, the -D_THREAD_SAFE compilation flag should be used, or the cc_r compiler used. In this case, the flag is automatically set.
This macro is part of the Base Operating System (BOS) Runtime.
