Recently, there has been an eeort to specify an IEEE standard for portable operating systems for open systems , called POSIX. One part of it, the POSIX.4a threads extension 3], describes the interface for lightweight threads that rely on shared memory and have a smaller context frame than processes. This paper describes the design and implementation of a library of POSIX.4a calls that is solely based on UNIX. It shows that a library implementation is feasible. This work can also be used as as a… CONTINUE READING
