RE: Way to wake up sleeping threads?

What do you mean by "sleeping"?

If you are blocked on a socket, then use a timeout for the
socket and check a flag to see if you should quit, else, block
on the socket again.

Otherwise, use a synchronization object, such as a semaphore
to "sleep" and post to it to wake it up.

pthread_kill involves signal handling which does not map well
to win32.

Subject: Way to wake up sleeping threads?

I'm trying to port some code that was using pthread_kill() to wake up a
sleeping thread.

Is there some other means of doing this with this implementation of
pthreads, since it doesn't support pthread_kill() ?
