How not to post ( was thread-safe timer for C++ callback )
In a unix pthreads based app I'm working on, I have objects of a particular class (call it class foo) being created in multiple threads. I need a specific public method of class foo invoked at or after 60 seconds of the object coming into existence (it is not imperative that it happens at precisely 60s, just that it happens at either 60s or very shortly thereafter).
Any ideas on what thread-safe timers are available that could I use to achieve this? Looking for either something that I could just drop right in to my class foo or which I could derive from.
