Trivial C11 threads.h implementation over POSIX threads. Rationale --------- GNU libc doesn't implement the thread part of the C library from the recent C11 standard, even though recent versions of gcc do support other aspects of it (like atomics). If you're starting a new multithreaded project in C right now, it would make sense to use the standard C way of using threads instead of a mismash of various platform-specific APIs. So until the system libc adds support for it, we need a stopgap that works exactly as the C standard describes. How to use ---------- No installation, no compilation, just drop c11threads.h to your project, and don't forget to link with -lpthread This library is extremely thin and implemented directly in the header file as a bunch of "static inline" functions (you do have at least C99 functionality while trying to use C11 threads, right?). If you'd like to use this with a C89 compiler, just search&replace or define-away all instances of "inline" to oblivion. Each object file will get a copy of all those static functions but that shouldn't be too cumbersome for a reasonably modern system (say anything after the 80s).
