33. Threads: Further Details

Chapter 33. Threads: Further Details

This chapter provides further details on various aspects of POSIX threads. We discuss the interaction of threads with aspects of the traditional UNIX API—in particular, signals and the process control primitives (fork(), exec(), and _exit()). We also provide an overview of the two POSIX threads implementations available on Linux—LinuxThreads and NPTL—and note where each of these implementations deviates from the SUSv3 specification of Pthreads.
