I'm currently working on a new frontend to a database that's older than me for a client. I finished the win32 and Java clients in about a month, the linux client took around 2 months because I kept tripping over their silly pthread wrappers (linuxthreads, I ended up fork-execing instead).
Pthreads are silly, yes, but their pretty portable and I've got a lotta code that uses them already. I'm new to FreeBSD but a couple guys at work say they've never had problems porting my stuff to freebsd so I'd actually like to do some native work on it.
My question is: is FreeBSD's implementation of pthreads fully/mostly/sorta compliant or does it do a similar approach to linux?
