Programming with POSIX threads David R. Butenhof
Publisher: Addison-Wesley Professional

I've used both POSIX threads (Pthreads) and Windows threads APIs, and I believe that Windows has the better programming model of the two. Pthreads (a.k.a POSIX Threads), is another parallel programming model over Shared Memory Computers, which is categorized to Threads Based Model (the other is message passing based model). The Phi coprocessor uses MIMD threads that place no restriction on how threads run or communicate. The charter of the group is to collect the best known methods of programming practices using today's technology. Implementations that adhere to this standard are referred to as POSIX threads, or Pthreads. For UNIX systems, a standardized C language threads programming interface has been specified by the IEEE POSIX 1003.1c standard. Grand Central Dispatch, or GCD, is a technology designed to let programmers easily harness the power of multi-core processors. At the time, it was the definitive work on the POSIX thread API, and multi-threaded programming in general. The threading library is the higher level of the two and is therefore the one to use in your typical programming tasks. POSIX Pthreads are a popular example of an API that supports this generic capability. Python's thread and threading libraries use POSIX threads. It is hard to believe, that earlier Linux kernels did not support threads. POSIX Threads is a widely supported standard, but has become more widely used due to the growth of the use of Embedded Linux. Creating And Destroying Threads Synchronizing Threads With Mutexes What Is A Mutex? Finally Microsoft Window's common programming API, Win32 is examined. Olivier Langlois's blog: I am sharing tips about programming as I find them. Multi-Threaded Programming With POSIX Threads Table Of Contents: Before We Start What Is a Thread? For embedded developers, that means C/C++ and libraries, mainly POSIX threads. David Butenhof's Programming with POSIX Threads was published 10 years ago, in 1997. Instead, all the "threading" was performed entirely in user space by a pthread (POSIX thread) library chosen for specific program. Today, I will write this post for my own reference using the POSIX threads and how to have the best usage of joins and mutex implementation.
