Programming with Posix Threads by David R. Butenhof
Return to Book Page. Programming with Posix Threads by David R. With this practical book, you will attain a solid understanding of threads and will discover how to put this powerful mode of programming to work in real-world applications.
The primary advantage of threaded programming is that it enables your applications to accomplish more than one task at the same time by using the number-crunching power of multiprocessor parallelism an With this practical book, you will attain a solid understanding of threads and will discover how to put this powerful mode of programming to work in real-world applications. Written for experienced C programmers, but assuming no previous knowledge of threads, the book explains basic concepts such as asynchronous ravid, the lifecycle of a thread, and synchronization.
You then move to more advanced topics such as attributes objects, thread-specific data, and realtime scheduling.
In addition, the book tackles one of the thorniest problems faced by thread programmers-debugging-with valuable suggestions on how to avoid code errors and performance problems from the outset. Numerous annotated examples are used to illustrate real-world concepts. A Pthreads mini-reference and a look at future standardization are also included.

Nov 27, Nick Black rated it it was amazing. By far the most authoritative and complete book on IEEE Do note there’s some important aspects of threads, both at the low and high levels atomic access to sub-wordlength variables and optimal distribution across architectures being an example of each that come to mind that Butenhof doesn’t cover, but any parallel programmer WILL encounter. It’s best to read the relevant literature, some of which Butenhof includes in his bibliography but look out for newer work.
