POSIX Pthreads

Release date: 
Tuesday, 19 January, 1999



This library provides basic POSIX Pthreads support for OS/2.

This software is distributed in two modes:
  • as compressed package that you have to download and manually install; if prerequisites are required, you will have to manually install them too;
  • as RPM package; you can install it using your favorite rpm package manager, that will take care to download and install both the software and its prerequisites.
Choose the installation mode that you prefer. Please note that not all the versions are available in both the installation modes.

Installation with rpm

This program is installable using the rpm package manager. See below for the install string. Required prerequisites are automatically processed by the package manager and, if needed, downloaded and installed.

Manual installation

Program is distributed as ZIP package: download to temporary directory and unpack to destination folder. See below for download link(s).

You can install the prerequisites with rpm running the following string in a command line:

POSIX PTHREADS for OS/2 EMX rel 4 -- Antony T Curtis - 10 Dec 1998 =========================================================== This library provides basic Pthreads support for EMX. Of course, there are some limitations which will need to be addressed to properly implement Pthreads, but hopefully, enough is implemented to get basic programs which use of Pthreads to work. This implementation of Pthreads is based upon the sources of the FreeBSD 2.2.5 libraries. Features: o Allows inter-thread signals via pthread_kill() o Allows signals to break (some) I/O calls. Other Features: o Partial implemention of dynamic library support Limitations: o Not fully tested. Implementation notes: o Changed the location of the library files... Have fun, Antony Curtis antony.curtis@olcs.net
