    Hard to compile on mingw32. Just install Embarcadero Studio. bcc32.exe will work perfect.

    Yeah windows does not support pthreads at all because Windows does not support POSIX standard. To get around this you will have to install and use a third party alternative.

    Like this one I suppose? https://www.sourceware.org/pthreads-win32/
