NAME

libthread - threads library  

SYNOPSIS

cc -mt [ flag... ] file...  [ library... ]
 

DESCRIPTION

Historically, functions in libthread provided threading support. This functionality now resides in libc(3LIB).

This library is maintained to provide backward compatibility for both runtime and compilation environments. The shared object is implemented as a filter on libc.so.1. New application development need not specify -lthread.  

INTERFACES

The shared object libthread.so.1 provides the public interfaces defined below. See intro(3) for additional information on shared object interfaces.
