This FAQ is designed to answer several frequently asked questions about Linux threads. For an in-depth view of threads or Linux threads join the discussions on comp.os.linux.development.system (c.o.l.d.s).
Since I am only conveying the information (and not an expert), please direct your specific questions to c.o.l.d.s or comp.programming.threads. If you have suggestions / additions / revisions to this document, please email me [[email protected]].
This is not a discussion on the various implementations of threads: it is specifically for Linux threading. If you want to see a comparison between systems or would like to promote some other system than is intended here, consider writing your own FAQ. Nevertheless, I welcome comments pertinent to the topic and will gladly add your input.
A special thanks to those who significantly helped me put this together: Byron A Jeff [[email protected]] (for a lot of theory) and Steven L. Blake [[email protected]] (for his list of sources). There also have been many others who have contributed.
