Description mkstreetdog 1999-10-14 03:00:36 UTC
The sem_init() function prototype is included in semaphore.h
header file and the libpthread.a library, but when I run a
program using this function an error appears stating that
the function sem_init() is not implemented. Is there another
library I can link into my programs which contains this

Please disregard this percieved bug, it is not a bug. I didn't read
the man pages (naughty...), process shared semaphores are not
supported in LinuxThreads. Sorry for the wasted space and undue use of
your time. (MK)
