The *best ever* conspiracy theory…

28 Feb

Nex and joe came up with this wonderful idea recently…

pthreads are “Peter threads” made specially for the torture of third years.

Ok, it doesn’t quite hold completely… pthreads are a part of unix. But it is rather suspect that you need to add the -lpthread flag in a standard gcc compilation in order to get them to compile/link.

Ps: nex says joe should get all the credit for coming up with this one. Joe originally said “nex and me”… Who is telling the truth? Find out next week…

Pps: pthreads are also alternatively known as pstrings, by concurrency-illiterate flatmates 😉
