I'm planning to use Boost.Thread in my program to utilize concurrency.
I already had a closer look at the documentation and I noticed that it's
lacking most parts for which I would consult a documentation in the
first place:

1. API reference
2. A user guide showing how to use Boost.Thread in practical examples

The only code examples I spotted were pseudo-code which were pretty
meaningless to me.

For example:

void foo()

What is create_thread? Which arguments does it take? What is bar?

I know I can't demand anything from the author since it's free software,
but... this is simply not very helpful. So, does anyone know a good
source with examples and maybe even an API reference of Boost.Thread?

Thanks in advance.
