[deprecated]thread_exit(+Term)Terminates the thread immediately, leaving
result state for thread_join/2.
If the thread has the attribute
detached(true) it terminates, but its exit status cannot be
retrieved using thread_join/2,
making the value of Term irrelevant. The Prolog stacks and C
thread are reclaimed.
The current implementation does not guarantee proper releasing of all
mutexes and proper cleanup in setup_call_cleanup/3,
etc. Please use the exception mechanism (throw/1)
to abort execution using non-standard control.bugThe
Windows port does not properly cleanup for detached threads

using the exited thread as engine. This is due to a bug in the MinGW
