- Subject: Shared mutexes & condvars
I am interested in getting shared (between processes..) mutexes and
condvars to work for pthreads-win32. The application we need them for
is an interprocess version of Aurelio Medina's POSIX message queue. His
code presumes that support for process-shared synchronization objects
exists in pthreads-win32. Which it does not at the moment.
I am back-porting his code to the raw WIN32 synchronization calls and
I'm sure I can get this to work on WINCE, but I hate to do this because
it really seems like we're going in the wrong direction. I'd be willing
to help make mutex/condvar process-shared if I can. Does anyone else
have any interest in getting this done?
