Migrate your apps from OS/2 to Linux: Part 1. Threads, mutexes, and semaphores
Anonymous Reader writes "Linux is evolving as the predominant operating system of the new millennium, and legacy OSes such as OS/2Â® are being gradually phased out. This series of articles helps the developers involved in the tedious process of migrating/porting the OS/2 system drivers and applications to Linux. It provides a one-to-one mapping of various OS/2-to-Linux calls related to threads, IPC, memory management, timer handling, file handling, and so on. In addition, it captures the various preprocessor directives and compiler/linker options that can be mapped from OS/2 to Linux. This is the first in a series of three articles."
