    I think it would go a long way toward making portable threaded applications less of a hassle. But don't you think this thread would be better suited to the General Discussions forum?

    pthreads-win32 is a C library used by C coders in C applications.

    They're part of the (OpenGroup) Single Unix Specification and
    have been standardized by such organisations as ANSI, ISO,
    IEEE and POSIX.

    What's general about them?

    Threads are certainly a hot topic I think, for C programmers!

    Would be nice. I'm getting into multi-threading and am using the pth library from GNU. I would love to be able to use the same basic functions in windows once I decide to go that way

    Thantos.

    Cool. I've been looking at pthreads for the past month.

    So far I've only utilised the basic functions like pthread_create,
    pthread_join, pthread_exit, pthread_mutex_*, pthread_cond_*

    There seems to be much to learn with these few functions alone
    in regard to avoiding race conditions, deadlocks, etc.

    If anyone is interested in pthreads here's a tutorial,
    http://www.llnl.gov/computing/tutori...eads/MAIN.html

    Also if anyone has or can recommend a good pthread tutorial I'd
    appreciate it.
