Overview

If you are a C, Windows, or systems programmer ready to unlock the powerful multitasking capabilities of IBM's hot OS/2 2.1 operating system, here is your key. This is the only OS.2 book devoted exclusively to multithreading, presenting all the tools and the ready-to-use source code you'll need to successfully integrate your application program with OS/2. Beginning with the basics of writing multithreaded programs and an overview of the massive OS/2 operating system, Effective Multithreading then moves to more complex demonstration programs and presents the OS/2 programmer's interface. The book then covers topics such as threads, priorities scheduling semaphores, queues, timers, and much more - everything you need for complete understanding! What's more, each topic is thoroughly explained and punctuated with heavily documented C source code. With more than 20 fully documented programs presented and an accompanying disk with complete program listings for all the source code, Effective Multithreading is a must-have for all programmers wishing to tap into OS/2's diversity.
