Programming Guidelines

This chapter provides some pointers on programming with threads. Most pointers apply to both Oracle Solaris and POSIX threads, but where utility differs, the behavior is noted. A change from single-threaded thinking to multithreaded thinking is emphasized in this chapter. The chapter discusses the following topics:
