An overview of POSIX threads
* What is threads - very generic to include Sun's lwp. * Why use threads more in the context of single-threaded app vs. multi-threaded app and threadas vs. fork(). * Kernel threads vs. user threads. This is important in Linux 2.6+ kernels with NPTL. * Basic thread concepts and functions: thread creation, thread join, mutex, conditions, attributes. * Some simple examples.
