32.4 Threads

[NOTE: this chapter was written for Cygnus Guile and has not yet been updated for the Guile 1.x release.]

Here is a the reference for Guile's threads. In this chapter I simply quote verbatim Tom Lord's description of the low-level primitives written in C (basically an interface to the POSIX threads library) and Anthony Green's description of the higher-level thread procedures written in scheme.

When using Guile threads, keep in mind that each guile thread is executed in a new dynamic root.

32.4.1 Low level thread primitives  
32.4.2 Higher level thread procedures
