Many vendors have their docs available on line these days. Some starting
Solaris and Sun compilers: http://docs.sun.com/
Note that Solaris is effectively free these days
and while the Forte compiler isn't free, they do
offer a download for 30-day trials.
My experience a few years ago was that Solaris x86
tracked Solaris-Sparc very closely, apart from endianness.
And yes, there is a Posix threads interface on Solaris;
that's what the manuals recommend using.
