Hey guys,

I've been doing some reading around the internet about Object Orierientated
Program designing,
got a OOP design
yet still I'm confused on how to approach designing a "large" program.

That's the background to this question: Is mutex locking the only way to
ensure that variables are only
being accessed by one thread at a time? Is it the "right" way to go about

I've seen quite some strong opinions around the internet on how RT threading
should be done,
however I still am not fully sure if PosixThreads is the way to go, (due to
windows not supporting it).

I've googled for "c++ cross-platform threading" which returned this
I've not yet fully understood it,
but I'm also slightly afraid that Ill be learning a bad habit rather than
how to use a good threading lib!

Any advice on where to start? Cheers, -Harry
