Subject: Re: Lisp io performance. From: Erik Naggum <email@example.com> Date: 1999/01/20 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> * eric dahlman <email@example.com> | I thought that they promised that version 5.0 would fix that on most | Unix platforms via os level threading. Allegro CL 5.0 uses OS-level threading only under Bill Gates' regime. | I only have 5.0 on Linux which still uses user level threading so I | cannot verify that until they send us our Solaris version... no difference between Linux and Solaris in this regard in Allegro CL 5.0. BTW, I don't _want_ OS-level threading. it has far more problems than it could ever hope to solve. OS-level threading is something you do when you can't get it right in the language, IMNSHO. C needs it. that's almost enough reason to avoid it. #:Erik -- SIGTHTBABW: a signal sent from Unix to its programmers at random intervals to make them remember that There Has To Be A Better Way.
