Subject RE: HPUX 10.20 threading?

	[Sorry for the delay]

Here's my knowledge regarding threads in HP-UX 10.20 (if you already know,
pl. disregard it)

- 10.20 does not have pthreads. The threading library is called CMA threads,
and is pretty different in terms of implementation and API's from that of
Pthread library.

- AFAIK, 10.20 is not supported by HP anymore. (and along with that goes the
support for CMA threads)

- My suggestion (as many others have also given) is to disable threads in

+1.  Same experience here.  I've managed to get pth to somewhat work, but it

was painful and not really reliable.  If someone feels adventurous, they can

enable it.  We do the same thing with FreeBSD's thread library.  -- justin
