    FreeBSD Threads

    I know this isn't a Linux question, but this is the closest we got to a *nix board here.

    I can't find much info on FreeBSD Threading (libc_r). I tried google'ing and to no success. Anybody have any luck with it?

    What exactly do you want to know?
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    You should be able to use POSIX threads.

    But I don't wanna!

    I just wanted to learn FreeBSD's threading. I can use POSIX threads as well, and I probably would use them in anything that I would seriously want to release for cross-platform support.

    FreeBSD threads are POSIX threads. That is their interface.

    http://www.unobvious.com/bsd/freebsd-threads.html

    FreeBSD native threads (libc_r)
    FreeBSD's threads library, libc_r, has had many features and performance improvements added, which makes it almost completely POSIX-compliant.

    Documentation for FreeBSD's native threads is available via the pthread(3) man page.

    I meant POSIX threads as in the pthread library, sorry for the confusion.
