Chapter 6. Windows Threading

6. Windows Threading

Multithreading support under the Microsoft Windows operating system is broadly similar to the support provided by POSIX threads. The differences are largely in the names of the functions in the API rather than any significant differences in the actual functionality. This chapter compares the Windows threading support with that of POSIX threads. By the end of the chapter, the reader should be familiar with Windows threading and will be able to convert code between Windows and POSIX threading conventions.
