Hey guys,

Last time I came on here you guys pointed me to some good code. I was wondering if you guys know where I can find a free library that is a multithreading library that supports the job pool (aka work queue) technique. I want to integrate multi-threading into my engine. I looked online and I found a post that is almost exactly what I was thinking: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/565137/multithreaded-job-queue-manager I'm wondering if I'll just have to write my own implementation. If that is the case does anybody have any book recommendations?

Thanks

Language? Platform?


I apologize. C++ and mainly Windows, but I would like to support other platforms in the future. My friend pointed to SDL, so I'll be checking that out.

SDL isn't a pool jobs library...

I would suggest googling for Threading Building Blocks (aka TBB) and seeing if that fits your needs as it is a task based system which uses thread pools under the hood.

If you're interested I wrote a little framework earlier this autumn; https://github.com/dutt/trassel.
