Re: pthread Win32 - runtime lib VC++ setting

First of all thanks for your answer.

As Simon Gerblich stated he is building the lib using /MD and it seems
to be ok, so I will use this flag for the release version.

OK ... So I will take the latest sources directly from the cvs.

I already read the FAQ, that is actually why I decided on the VC version, as
I have to port a Unix app on Windows, so I just assume that this version
is simulating in the best way the Unix posix threads and what the Unix
expected from the posix threads usage ...

And if I understood correctly, the VC version don't need any flag to be
neither in pthread sources, nor in the app that uses this dll, as by default
the VC
will be build/used.

Thanks a lot !!!
