You should ask in comp.programmin g.threads. C++ does not
have any mechanisms for multithreading, it's all part of the
platform/OS you're on.

Are you reading that source to learn? Are you on the job and must change it?
Or are you writing a new program with threads?

From the top: C++ does not define any Standard thread functions. Every
implementation of C++ is different, and exposes various different OS
threading facilities. To learn from existing source, or change it, you must
research only the specific threading library (ZThread?) involved. They are
all different, and a generic introductory book might not cover your library.

If you are writing a new program, don't thread. Always start with a fully
event-driven design, so you won't need threading for as long as possible.
Make sure all your long processes are interruptible. Don't write a loop
statement if you can store its index in a data member and loop from driver
code.

Premature threading can lead to a bad design - and simply horrible bugs as
the threads conflict over resoures. An event driven design, however,
typically forces your program to use a clean and healthy object model. This
makes threads easy and safe to retrofit if you then find a real reason for
them.

Actually having hit the clock speed enhancement wall and getting multicore processors, we
must thread as much as possible.

Hello everyone. I am new to programming and my uncle gave me a copy of "C For Dummies 2nd Edition". I am up to chapter 9 right now. He probably saw me struggling with "The C Programming Language" by Ritchie and Kernigahn and felt bad. Does anyone have experience with this book? I feel that it is helping me along pretty well. But how much will this book teach me? What would be the next book to read?
