Hood is a C++ user-level threads library for multiprogrammed, shared-memory multiprocessors. Hood is designed primarily for parallel programs, and it is especially effective for dynamic, highly asynchronous parallelism. Hood's thread scheduler is a non-blocking implementation of the work-stealing algorithm that has been shown to be efficient both in theory and in practice. The current version fully supports Solaris (SPARC) and partially supports Linux: due to the Linux implementation of pthreads, many library calls are not safe for use within Hood threads (this problem does not exist under Solaris).
