32 <para>The <application>NPth</application> package contains a very portable
33 POSIX/ANSI-C based library for Unix platforms which provides non-preemptive
34 priority-based scheduling for multiple threads of execution (multithreading)
35 inside event-driven applications. All threads run in the same address space
36 of the server application, but each thread has its own individual
37 program-counter, run-time stack, signal mask and errno variable. </para>
