Pre-emptive Thread Packages

Pre-emptive Thread Packages

Post by Ronald D Ku » Sat, 08 Oct 1994 06:22:55

I'm trying to inventory pre-emptive thread packages available for various platforms.
Please respond if you know of any packages for:

Sun - SunOS
Sun - Solaris
SGI - Irix
DEC - Ultrix

I'm looking for either C or C++ implementations.  Please respond via e-mail

1. Is Windoze 3.11 pre-emptive?

I am posting here to verify a suspicion I have about windoze.

1)      It is possible for one Windoze app to read the memory of another
        since there is no good memory protection..  T/F

        (IE:  I have noticed that if one app crashes, the whole OS

2)      It is possible for one windoze app to hog the CPU indefinitely.
        (IE:  I came across some source to draw fractals under Windoze,
        and the app has to surrender the CPU "in case" something else
        has to use it... ;-)

Let me say that I have run Linux for around a year now, and I've only
crashed the OS twice in that whole time.  One time I fork bombed myself
as an experiment.  (DOH!)  The other time I ran out of memory doing a
ray trace.  I find that good memory management is one of Unix(Linux)'s
strong points.
