    Thread library

    I am rewriting my multithreaded (POSIX threads) Linux application from pure C into C++. I want to encapsulate pthreads functionality into some library. I've tryed to write my own, but it needs a lot of time I do not have (maybe I'll write it after I learn some more stuff).

    So I've googled out some libraries (Boost threads, ZThreads, ...) offering this, but actually there are a lot of them and I do not know which one to choose.

    I've already asked this question on another forum, but nobody answered... Is there someone on this C-specialized forum, who has some experience with some of these libraries? Which one do you use? Thanks.

    I had a similar question and the response was that there's no still good C++ library for threads, so pthreads and Win32 API are still best offer. Author of Boost threads abandoned the developement of the library, because it is not included in C++ standard.

    I'm programming under Linux, so you say, the best choice is to use standard pthreads library and write my own C++ library? (Is there some free online tutorials/howtos for this topic?)

    That's the advice I've got from an experienced programmer, he's programming under Windows and Linux in C++.
    I learned from the book Advanced Linux Programming. The chapter for thread is very good written.
