But if you're using native threads, aren't read(2) and write(2) already thread-safe in some sense? (I really don't know.) That's where most of the potentially expensive synchronization is, anyway. There's a little bit in the streams layer, but I'm not sure avoiding that would be worth the potential pain. -- Cheers =8-} Mike Friede, Völkerverständigung und überhaupt blabla
