I guess this one has been discussed before but I couldn´t find any infos about that:

There is a Pthreads implementation for AmigaOS4/MorphOS as far as I can remember, although I was only able to find a OS4 binary on Aminet by Thomas Frieden.

Is there some open source implementation of this one? What would be the best way to get POSIX threads implemented here?

I think it could help us in some places like a potential solution for AROS self-compiling and the MONO stuff.. ?

I asked Thomas Frieden about the sources and got a reply, that his library is not based at all on any GPL code and he wants the sources to be closed. But his library would not rely on anything OS4 specific, it should be an easy recompile on the other systems. Just a little bit difficult, without sources.

Would make porting of unix applications much easier, definately. Mozilla can use pthreads, too, for example.

How about some binaries? Does he have any interest in AROS, and is he willing to compile it for us?

I doubt, he would compile them for us. And I doubt, I want some binary only (pthreads) library at all.

Ok, good to know at least.. CoolCat pointed me to some PThreads source posted by Markus some time ago on the ML I already forgot about it, it´s in Rob´s SVN now although I do not know how much work there is left now. It´s static btw. I dropped Markus an EMail already but he did not reply yet. I need to finish my thesis right now, but anyone else interested on it? Would look nice in contrib..

If a tree bounces in a forest and no one hears it, does it bounce at all?

I found this in the developer mailing list (2007-06-09):
I once did it to compile gcd, a gcc front end for the D language.
Sure, I can commit it, though it does almost nothing at the moment.

Yes, I looked into the pthread lib before. It is kind of an empty hull with some implemented parts. As I said I am no *NIX* hacker and found the pthread concept somewhat strange. Completing pthreads and signaling and some other minor missing pieces would take too much time if it is done by myself...


These are just stubs indeed. I will have a look on it. Kalamatee was so kind to put it in contrib and configure it as a shared library as I still have far too less knowledge about setting those up in build system. I will check the existing Linux and Windows Pthreads implementations and will try to fill the stubs..

Any other hints as for here? As far as I know there is a Pthreads-w32 and Native POSIX Thread Library.. what would be the best place to start?

Sad but true.

Seems to be only a test case for a thread library.
