Don't know why all the white space in the code turned intro "?".
Hopefully this is better:

#include <pthread.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <unistd.h>

#define checkResults(string, val) {             \
 if (val) {                                     \
   printf("Failed with %d at %s", val, string); \
   exit(1);                                     \
 }                                              \
}

#define                 NUMTHREADS   5
pthread_once_t          oneTimeInit = PTHREAD_ONCE_INIT;
int                     initialized = 0;
int                     resource    = 0;

void initFunction(void)
{
   printf("Thread %.8x %.8x: INITIALIZE RESOURCE\n");
   initialized = 1;
   resource = 42;
   printf("Thread %.8x %.8x: initialized is>>> %d\n",
	 pthread_self(), initialized);
}

void *theThread(void *parm)
{
  int   rc;
  printf("Thread %.8x %.8x: Entered\n", pthread_self());
  //if (!initialized) {
    rc = pthread_once(&oneTimeInit, initFunction);
    checkResults("pthread_once()\n", rc);
    //}
  printf("Thread %.8x %.8x: The resource is %d\n",
	 pthread_self(), resource);
  return NULL;
}

int main(int argc, char **argv)
{
  pthread_t             thread[NUMTHREADS];
  int                   rc=0;
  int                   i;

  printf("Enter Testcase - %s\n", argv[0]);

  printf("Create/start threads\n");
  for (i=0; i <NUMTHREADS; ++i) {
    rc = pthread_create(&thread[i], NULL, theThread, NULL);
    checkResults("pthread_create()\n", rc);
  }

  printf("Wait for the threads to complete, and release their resources\n");
  for (i=0; i <NUMTHREADS; ++i) {
    rc = pthread_join(thread[i], NULL);
    checkResults("pthread_join()\n", rc);
  }

  printf("Main completed\n");
  return 0;
}
