|Title||No multi-threaded test cases on Windows|
|Assigned user||Gareth Rees|
|Description||The multi-threaded test cases and benchmarks (amcssth, awlutth, djbench, gcbench) don't run on Windows.|
|Analysis||That's because the test cases are written using POSiX threads, which of course don't run on Windows.|
We could use a POSIX threads library for Windows such as pthreads-w32 . But the only POSIX thread features we actually use are pthread_t, pthread_create() and pthread_join() so it ought to be straightforward to add a portable threads wrapper to testlib.c.
