threadpool11 threadpool11

A fast, almost lock-free, cross-platform, full CPU utilizing thread pool implementation using C++11 features.

You can find the dead simple API documentation on header comments.

This project was initially developed in just a few hours of free time as I could not find a simple lightweight thread pooling library for my needs.

Available on AUR.

I will be glad to hear about the suggestions/ideas you have about the project, via the issue reporting section.

All non '-dev' branches are safe to use but prefer the latest version.
