    IIRC pthreads is a non-preemptive library. As such you can't not give one thread a higher priority then other threads.

    A quick jog over to Google gives you something like this. Granted, I only spent about 10 seconds there, so there's a fairly good chance you'll find something better were you to spend more time than I did.

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.
