Probably there is some misunderstanding, as I failed to understand this
So I'll try to re-phrase. The point I tried to make is that the pthread
philosophy would be accepted by the C/C++ standard, but the pthread
exact syntax doesn't have to. The C/C++ standard can adopt a different
syntax. To implement this syntax, an implementor can opt to first
implement the pthread syntax, and then use it to implement the standard
C/C++ syntax, but this is none of our business. We (C/C++ programmers)
only care of the standard C/C++ syntax and semantics. These semantics
are the same as the pthreads semantics, only because they are good
I hope I better explained myself this time.
