There are many instances when one needs to process certain objects on seperate threads. But spawning a seperate thread per object may cause the system to crash. The Thread Pooling Framework can be used to process the the objects on a predefined number of threads. If all threads are busy, the objects are kept in the pool. Whenever a thread ends, an objects is taken from the pool and processed on a new thread. This continues until the pool is empty.
Plan 9 From User Space is a port of the bulk of the Plan 9 software build environment to Unix. While the libraries make an attempt to play nice with the rest of the system (by using the Unix rules for printf verbs and Unix system headers, for example), this port tries to reproduce the Plan 9 build environment as faithfully as possible, providing u.h and libc.h, and blithely redefining tokens such as open, dup, and accept in order to provide implementations that better mimic the Plan 9 semantics. The result is a more complicated and less Unix-friendly environment, but Plan 9 programs can typically be compiled with little or no changes.
