College of DuPage, Room 2800
In this session, we'll take a closer look at pthreads and the ways in
which you can use them. We'll start with a very quick review of the
last session (April '01) and then proceed with the advanced material we were
unable to talk about last time due to time constraints. Among other
things, we'll talk about getting and setting pthreads attributes,
initializing a set of threads with pthread_once, the use of
thread-specific data, and thread cancellation. If time permits, and I
can pull it off, we'll also take a close look at a real, live,
threaded TCP server and see hot it is coded using both pthreads and
the Berkeley sockets API.
Richard K. Wolf has been working for the Academic Computing and
Communications Center at the University of Illinois at Chicago for
the past twelve years. During that time, he has worked on a wide
variety of projects, but is mostly known as one of only two Macintosh
fanatics within the ACCC. In the past few years, he has had the
opportunity to develop custom TCP and UDP server applications for the
NetWare operating system. While creating those applications, he
learned an awful lot about what -shouldn't- be done in a
multi-threaded application -- and mostly the hard way.
