Why and how to use `pthread_join()`? - PThreads

Posted 05-23-2012 at 01:00 AM by TheIndependentAquarius

  • Q: What is join with respect to Pthreads?
    A: Join is a functionality of Pthread library which allows the originating thread to wait for the completion of all its spawned thread's tasks.

    Without join the originating thread would exit as soon as it completes its chores, completely ignoring the states of its spawned threads. Due to this, even if any of the spawned threads is in middle of its chore, it'll simply get aborted.

Last month I wrote about the crossroads I was at in my career. Well, I decided it was time to take some action.

I don't really like the default behavior of Grub in Ubuntu to continue to add all the kernel updates to my grub boot menu. I never go back and use old kernels (except by mistake) and it just crowds up my boot menu.

In the past, I have used the #howmany option in /boot/grub/menu.lst to limit this to only the most recent kernel. Now that I am using Karmic Koala though, this option no longer appears to be available due to the fact that the default bootloader is now Grub 2.

I often read in posts on this forums things like: "If you want a more user-friendly OS then go for Ubuntu or Mint.", "Debian is less user-friendly than Ubuntu." or "Slackware is not a user-friendly distribution."
