Function - Create a thread within a task.
kern_return_t thread_create (task_t parent_task, thread_act_t child_thread);
The thread_create function creates a new thread within parent_task. The new thread has a suspend count of one and no processor state.
The new thread holds a send right for its thread kernel port. A send right for the thread's kernel port is also returned to the calling task or thread in child_thread. The new thread's exception ports are set to MACH_PORT_NULL.
To get a new thread running, first use thread_set_state to set a processor state for the thread. Then, use thread_resume to schedule the thread for execution. Alternately, use thread_create_running.
Only generic errors apply.
