In this book, realistic examples show both the situations where threading is valuable and the ways to use threads to improve the modularity and efficiency of a program. The author takes the user behind the scenes to show them how threads work, where to expect problems, and what performance issues exist. Chapters on DCE, real-time, and multiprocessing are included.
