The draft standard POSIX Threads Extension provides an application program interface to operating system services supporting the creation and execution of multiple threads of control within a single process. Where Ada is implemented over an operating system that supports POSIX-like thread services, there are good reasons to implement the Ada tasks as POSIX threads.
