Full description 'Pth' is a portable library that provides 'Pth' is a portable library that provides non-preemptive priority-based scheduling for multiple threads of execution inside event-driven applications. Threads run in the same address space on the server application, but each one has its own individual program-counter, run-time stack, signal mask and errno variable. A priority- and event-based non-preemptive scheduler manages the threads; this gives better portability and run-time performance than preemptive scheduling. The event facility lets threads wait until various events occur, including pending I/O on filedescriptors, asynchronous signals, elapsed timers, pending I/O on message ports, thread and process termination, and customized call back functions.ation, and customized call back functions.
