Get a unique ID for the current thread in Rust.

Build Status Build Status version Documentation

For diagnostics and debugging it can often be useful to get an ID that is different for every thread. Until Rust 1.14, the standard library did not expose a way to do that, hence this crate.


use std::thread;
use thread_id;

thread::spawn(move || {
    println!("spawned thread has id {}", thread_id::get());

println!("main thread has id {}", thread_id::get());

This will print two different numbers.
