C Threads Publisher's description
from Orn E. Hansen
C Threads library provides process scoping, a feature that has been greatly missed in the linux community.
The aim of this library, is to provide the programmer with an easy to use class, that can be further inherited to provide a rich set of threaded functionality rarely seen in a linux environment.
Full C is provided, without any wrapping around underlying C code, which gives more compact and faster objects.
The library provides process scoping, a feature that has been greatly missed in the linux community. This feature allows different programs to share memory and control variables, for synchronisation and direct data communications.
It has the ability to simulate asynchronous I/O on file descriptors. An example provided with the library, shows how to communicate with a modem with an asynchronous method where data is obtained and stored in a priority queue, giving the main process full ability to handle other tasks.
Such an I/O class, can be used to handle data input from several different file descriptors simultaneously, but is limited to handling only one server file descriptor per class.
