Welcome to Lunchbox, a C++ library for multi-threaded programming. Lunchbox was formerly known as eq::base or co::base, the foundation for the Equalizer parallel rendering framework and the Collage network library. It is intended for all application developers creating high-performance multi-threaded programs.
Lunchbox provides the following major features to facilitate the development and deployment of multi-threaded applications:
- OS Abstraction: Utility classes abstracting common operating systems features, e.g., threads, locks, memory maps, shared library loading and condition variables.
- High-Performance Primitives: Thread-safe utilities tuned for performance, e.g., atomic variables, spin locks and lock-free containers.
- Utility classes: Helper primitives which are not in the standard library, e.g., logging, pools and random number generation.
