Hi there,

    Beginning to play with some code in linux plateform for audio, I
face a major problem: I have a very weak understanding of thread
programming. I know the basic concepts (thread principle, mutex and
lock), but fail to use them effectively. I found a lot of links on
thread programming, but it is just about the API (generally pthread),
and the examples are really trivial in general. When I looked at the
archive, I see a lot of terms which I don't really understand, like
watchdog thread, thread scheduling, and I am lost :(
    So does anybody know a good and deep online ressource about thread
programming ? Also, my main language is C++, and I looked a bit at boost
library. It should be kind of a detail, but are there deep differences
between pthread and boost.threads ?
