typedef [type] test_pal_thread_return_t;


This typedef is mandatory.


When a thread function returns, it returns a value to the OS. This typedef is the type of than return value.

If we look at the Windows thread function prototype;

DWORD WINAPI ThreadProc( _In_ LPVOID lpParameter );

We see the return type is DWORD.

(The WINAPI part is actually a compiler directive and is handled in the abstraction layer by the TEST_PAL_CALLING_CONVENTION define.)


typedef DWORD test_pal_thread_state_t;
