An innovative open-source software for multi-thread computing
ThreadStack is an outcome of the scientific research study that is carried out by Erkam Murat Bozkurt about meta-programming. The software has been developed by Erkam Murat Bozkurt that lives in Istanbul / TURKEY. He has graduated from Istanbul Technical University ( ITU ) Control Systems Engineriing division with M.Sc degree. The main purpose of the research study is to develop an easy and efficient way to develop multi-threaded C++ programs.
Basically, ThreadStack is an innovative open-source software which produces an application specific class library for C++ multi-thread programming and the library constructed by ThreadStack acts as an autonomous management system for the thread synchronization tasks. ThreadStack offers a new way for multi-thread computing and the idea of ThreadStack is to use another software ( a meta-program ) in order to reduce the complexity of multi-thread programming.
Actually, ThreadStack is not a threading library. Instead, it is a multi-threading library generator and in each library construction process, it produces a new “application specific multithreading library” relying on the programmer needs. In each time, the programmers enters their preferences to the threadstack and a meta program produces a new threading library based on the information that is given by the programmers. Not surprisingly, the application specific library which is generated by the threadstack has much more powerful tools according to standard threading libraries. For instance, it provides autonomous thread management. In below, it has been explained briefly why the threadstack produces an application specific library.
The biggest problem on thread programming is non-deterministic scheduling of the threads. Different runs of a multi-threaded program may show different behaviour depending on how the threads interleave. It plays a crucial role on the deadlocks as well. However, the scheduling of the threads are determined by the operating system. Different from standard threading libraries such as C++ threads, in threadstack, the programmer can determine how the threads interleave thanks to its autonomous management system.
More specificaly, In threadstack, the programmer can control the threads by means of their unique numbers and the interaction between the threads are completely determined by the programmer. The programmer can determine which thread will be blocked by which thread and how and in which place the threads will be rescued later on. In other words, the user of the ThreadStack can directly schedule the execution of the threads. Moreover, the synchronization tools of the ThreadStack provides absolute deadlock protection if the program is written carefully ( the synchronization tools know which thread is under blockage and how the thread blocked will be activated later on) .
ThreadStack has a nice and useful graphical user interface and includes a short tutorial and code examples. The tutorial and code examples can be also dowloaded from project web site (from files section). The tutorial includes the main designs of the program and therefore, the programmer must read the tutorial to be able to use the software.
