Sometime ago I searched for this lib and -of course- I did not find it :-/
In the meantime I developed my own thread pool library based on
It's available at http://threadpool.sourceforge.net and already used by
The framework is extensible and easy-to-use (in case you like
boost::function / bind). At the moment I'm working on a task adaptor for
combining parallel and sequential tasks e.g. (t1 | t2) & t3.
I'm going to take a look at the defer lib soon and would like to discuss
about a threadpool solution for boost.
