BeOS & Derivatives "The primary intention of my previous article was to make it very clear why and when locking is needed in multithreaded applications. In this article, I want to present my experiences in writing a new prototype for a replacement of the document model in WonderBrush and how it is manipulated and rendered asynchronously."

Writing multithreaded applications in C++ is like pulling teeth.


I don't agree. The problem is that a lot of developers just won't or will not understand multi-threading. Using a language that "hides" the locking & message passing details may help mitigate that problem somewhat, but they'll still have very little idea of how it works.

Writing multi-threaded C++ is easy. There are three or four rules to remember and that's about it. Any developer should be capable of it.
