POSIX Threads (pthreads) for Win32

Filed under: Development,Windows — Jannis at 11:27 am on Monday, May 14, 2007

The POSIX 1003.1-2001 standard defines an application programming interface (API) for writing multithreaded applications. This interface is known more commonly as pthreads. A good number of modern operating systems include a threading library of some kind: Solaris (UI) threads, Win32 threads, DCE threads, DECthreads, or any of the draft revisions of the pthreads standard. The trend is that most of these systems are slowly adopting the pthreads standard API, with application developers following suit to reduce porting woes.

Win32 does not, and is unlikely to ever, support pthreads natively. This project seeks to provide a freely available and high-quality solution to this problem.

Various individuals have been working on independent implementations of this well-documented and standardised threading API, but most of them never see the light of day. The tendency is for people to only implement what they personally need, and that usually does not help others. This project attempts to consolidate these implementations into one implementation of pthreads for Win32…

Install Boost on Windows Using VS2005

To install follow these instructions from the BOOST WIKI

How to Install Boost for Visual C++ Users

An unambiguous guide for Visual C++ users who have never installed 3rd party libraries before. In this example VC++ has been installed to d:\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\ Subtitute your install directory accordingly.

  • Download and extract: boost_[version].exe and boost-jam-[version]-ntx86.zip . You can obtain the most recent versions from SourceForge.
  • Move bjam.exe into the directory you extracted boost to.
  • In a command prompt, navigate to this same directory.
    • If you’ve installed VC++ in the default location – c:\Program Files , run the command: bjam install
    • Users who have installed VC++ in another directory use the command: bjam.exe “-sVC80_ROOT=d:\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC” -sTOOLS=vc-8_0 install
    • Add –prefix=d:\Boost\ if you want to install it to another dir besides c:\boost **Boost will begin compiling. When finished, all the necessary files (.hpp .lib and .dll) for using boost will reside in c:\boost

You probably need to set PATH to “c:\windows;c:\windows\system32;c:\windows\wbem” to make it work.

Adding Boost Files to Your Projects
  • Since boost is extremely useful, it’s likely you’ll want to set the default search path for .lib’s and .hpp’s in all your projects. After these next steps you will be able to declare boost headers with this syntax: #include <boost/filesystem/operations.hpp>
    • In MSVC navigate to Tools -> Options -> Projects and Solutions -> VC++ Directories.
    • You should see on the top right corner text that says ‘Show Directories For’
    • Choose ‘Include Files’ and add the directory c:\boost\include\boost-[version]
    • For libs, choose ‘Library Files’ and add the directory c:\boost\lib

That should be it. Try one of the examples detailed in the Boost documents.
