Threads share the process memory. Inter-thread communication via memory is the fastest.

Synchronization may be required for memory access amongst producers and consumers. However, implementations exist that require no lock to avoid context switch for systems with critical demand on performancem

Subject: [Boost-users] threads: shared lock question

I'm new to threads and boost, so I'm sure this is a real newbie question and hopefully quite easy to answer!

I'm trying to set up a pool of threads that do a calculation, and I want to wait for those calculations to finish. Normally I'd do thread_group.join_all() to wait for the threads to exit - but in this case I want my threads hanging around so that I can redo that calculation over and over again when I ask it to do.

What's the best way to signal back to the main thread that all calculations are complete? Should I use a barrier?
