Need pthread Library for WinCE RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    We need to use pthread library for our project. When we searched on the net, it is observed that pthread library for windows is available. Anyone know whether the pthread library for WinCE7 is available or not? As per our understanding to port this windows code to Wince7 is a huge task. So please help us to identify a pthread library for WinCE.

  • I just googled for "pthread win32 source" and found at least one possible source code example (see That isn't to say that you won't have a little work to get it to compile/link for Windows Compact.

  • Hi Bruce,

    Thanks for the reply..

    We found the same link and we downloaded the same source code. Then this source code is successfully compiled for Win32 but we could not possible to compile this source code for Windows CE. Also we think that this is an old version of source code, so this may not be compatible with WinCE7. Please get back with your comments.

  • Why do you believe it's old? What errors are generated during compile? I think it's more likely that the code can be made to compile for CE but that it won't without proper settings which you may not have.
