LIBTHREAD(3LIB) Interface Libraries LIBTHREAD(3LIB)


NAME


libthread - threads library

SYNOPSIS


cc -mt [ flag... ] file... [ library... ]


DESCRIPTION


Historically, functions in libthread provided threading support. This
functionality now resides in libc(3LIB).


This library is maintained to provide backward compatibility for both
runtime and compilation environments. The shared object is implemented as
a filter on libc.so.1. New application development need not specify
-lthread.

INTERFACES


The shared object libthread.so.1 provides the public interfaces defined
below. See Intro(3) for additional information on shared object
interfaces.
