<programming> (Pthreads) A POSIX standard API that
defines a set of C programming language types, functions
and constants for creating and manipulating pre-emptive threads.
The standard's full name is "POSIX.1c, Threads extensions
(IEEE Std 1003.1c-1995)". Implementations are available on
many Unix-like POSIX-conformant operating systems such as
FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, GNU/Linux, Mac OS X and
Solaris as well as DR-DOS and Microsoft Windows.
Pthreads was designed and implemented in the PART Project
(POSIX / Ada-Runtime Project).
