Synopsis

The idea behind POSIX threads is to have multiple tasks running concurrently within the same program. They can share a single CPU as processes do, or take advantage of multiple CPUs when available. In either case, they provide a clean way to divide the tasks of a program while sharing data. This book features realistic examples, a look behind the scenes at the implementation and performance issues, and special topics such as DCE and real-time extensions.

Buchrückseite

Computers are just as busy as the rest of us nowadays. They have lots of tasks to do at once and need some cleverness to get them all done at the same time. That's why threads are becoming a new model for programming. Microsoft Windows NT, the Distributed Computing Environment (DCE), and many UNIX-based operating systems support threads. One advantage of most UNIX and DCE implementations is that they conform to a recently ratified POSIX standard (originally 1003.4a, now 1003.1c), which allows your programs to be portable between them. The POSIX threads standard, commonly known as Pthreads, is supported by most UNIX-based operating systems. With threads programming, multiple tasks run concurrently within the same program. They can share a single CPU as processes do or take advantage of multiple CPUs when available. They provide a clean way to divide the tasks of a program while sharing data. In this book you will learn when to use threads and how to make them efficient. The book delves into performance issues, comparing threads to processes, contrasting kernel threads to user threads, and showing how to measure speed. It describes in a simple, clear manner what all the advanced features are for and how threads interact with the rest of the UNIX system.

Format: Taschenbuch
The strength of this book is it's brevity: 233 pp of text plus appendices. But the code samples are incomplete (fragments). You'll be able to get an idea of how pthreads work and the methods available, but you'll have a very hard time if you need to actually write code. There is an error on p.126. If you want to write code, get "Programming with POSIX Threads" by David Butenhof. It has complete code examples and is not that much longer: 305 pp of text plus appendices. But I did find this Nichols book helpful when I was curious about pthreads. I commend O'Reilly for the nice illustrations in this book -- above average. They helped convey concepts.

Of the 4 I've read on the topic, this is a good book but my personal preference (based on how the information was presented, the relevance of coding examples, etc.) is for the Butenhof Pthreads book (excellent) or the Lewis, et. al. Multithreaded Programming book (also very good).

Von Ein Kunde am 4. Januar 1998
Format: Taschenbuch
As usual, O'Reilly have produced an excellent reference book. In a few respects, this book is preferable to Scott Norton's "Thread Time" - it has better examples, for one.
But this book is not as detailed or complete as Norton, so I don't recommend it as the best choice on the subject.

With all the sophisticated tools available today such as OpenMP, this book may seem quaint. However before grasping at concepts or just using tools with out any understanding or their make up it would be wise to add this to your learning curve.

This book gives a good basic understanding of Pthreads. Of course you will later have to apply it to the real world but as a learning tool this is pretty darn good. The website or path on the sight has changed since publication; but the examples are still there. Because I am using AIX it does take a little time to convert from a gcc format to an AIX format. Then a little more time to apply AIX specific advantages.

As you go from the front of the book to the end the samples get added to and new concepts become available. There are plenty of diagrams for the visual learner. I personally found the signal handling of great use.

Any way this book is not the end-all, be-all, of threads but it sure cleared a lot of concepts up for me.

1. Why Pthreads
2. Designing threaded programs
3. Synchronizing Pthreads
4. Managing Pthreads
5. Pthreads and UNIX
6. practical Considerations

4.0 von 5 Sternen I think it provides a good overview 22. September 2000
Von Dan Crevier - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I agree with the other reviews that it's not the ultimate authority on pthreads, but I think it provides a great overview from a very practical standpoint. It has lots of good discussions on when to use threads, general design priniciples of using threads, problems you will likely encounter, and discussions of performance. It also has some good examples, including an example of how to turn some non-thread-safe linked list code into thread-safe code. I really like that its brief and doesn't go into too many details -- you can read it from cover to cover. If you want more details, you will want to refer to one of the other books that the other reviewers have mentioned.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not the best effort I've read... 7. Mai 2001
Von Gregorio - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The short code snippets are horrible. If the author wants to save money and space by using code snippets, it should be checked and checked again for accuracy. There are numerous errors in the code. For example, on page 80, there is an example of condition variable usage. However, there are no function prototypes! This is just one of numerous obvious ommissions. Trust me, there are non-obvious errors too. If you're looking for an overview, this will do you fine. However, if you're looking for some decent code examples to look at, I'd suggest Butenhof's book instead.
Multi-threaded programming is difficult enough, why make it harder for yourself?
