Multithreaded Programming with Pthreads

From Higher Intellect Vintage Wiki

ISBN: 0-13-680729-1

Learn basic threads concepts and APIs; master the complexities of multithreaded programming; and optimize the performance of your multithreaded applications. Based on the best-selling "Threads Primer", Multithreaded Programming with Pthreads gives you a solid understanding of Posix threads: what they are, how they work, when to use them, and how to optimize them. It retains the clarity and humor of the Primer, but includes expanded comparisons to Win32 and OS/2 implementations. Code examples tested on all of the major UNIX platforms are featured along with detailed explanations of how and why they use threads. In addition to scheduling, synchronization, signal handling, etc., special emphasis is placed on Cancellation, Error Conditions, Performance, Hardware, Languages, and References.
