POSIX(pthread) and MSP430




I had question on usage of POSIX(pthread) library in MSP430.

how can i use "pthread.h" functions in my MSP430.


when I tried to use pthread it threw a error ***could not open source file "pthread.h"****


I would be happy to know any pros and cons for using POSIX in MSP430.

thanks in advance

    Did you get relatively larger amount of fed backs? I was trying to give you a recursive endless more feed backs.

    Call RoweBots. They can deliver POSIX on "TI SSC MSP430" in less than four calendar weeks.

    I had question on usage of POSIX(pthread) library in MSP430.

    Where did you get this library from?Was a an MSP port? Wasn't there any instruction about how to use it?

    IMHO, any full pthreads implementation will be too large for all but the biggest MSPs. And a stripped-down will be more or less useless. Any MSP specific implementaiton will be faster, smaller and less problematic.


    Time to say goodbye - I don't have the time anymore to read and answer forum posts. After falling behind by two months (900 threads), there's no point in continuing. See my bio for details.

    Before posting bug reports or ask for help, do at least quick scan over this article. It applies to any kind of problem reporting. On any forum. And/or look here.
    If you cannot discuss your problem in the public, feel free to start a private conversation: click on my name and then 'start conversation'. But please do so only if you really cannot do it in a public thread, as I usually read all threads. And I prefer to answer where others can profit from it (or contribute to it) too.
