FATAL:Exception occured when pthread_exit() used

We had written an application in which we create worker thread.

So the main thread will create the worker thread. After some time

the child thread(Worker thread) will call pthread_exit().

This function was written in try{} and there occured an exception
and is handled in catch(...) handler.

This is on Linux platform.

The Implementation of the code is as follows:

This is a simple form of our application, Try to run this small piece

of code.

The output of this is " FATAL: exception not rethrown

Inside catch... Aborted"

#include <stdio.h>

#include <stdlib.h>

#include <stdexcept.h>

#include <pthread.h>

using namespace std;

void print_message_function( void *ptr );

int main()


pthread_t thread1;

char *message1 = "Thread 1";

int iret1;

iret1 = pthread_create( &thread1, NULL, (void*(*)(void*))&print_message_function, (void*) message1);

pthread_join( thread1, NULL);


void print_message_function( void *ptr )


char *message;

message = (char *) ptr;



pthread_exit((void*) 1);




printf("Inside catch...\n");

pthread_exit((void*) 1);
I'm no Linux expert, but do you really mean to convert 1 to an address??
