Information on pthreads
For completing the work required in CS 3750, I think students can learn all
they need about threads and semaphores from the textbook and the code
examples. However, there is also plenty of online documentation for the
student who want to learn more about how to program with pthreads on the Sun
Enter "man pthread" on a shell command line to see an overview of the pthreads package. To learn about individual commands, look at the man page for the command. For example, entering "man pthread_create" will get you information
about the command that creates a thread.
