Pthread

This information is somewhat out-dated, though it may work there is now a pthread.h file in the devkitPPC include directoy

This goes into %DEVKITPRO%/libogc/include/pthread.h

NOTE
pthread_create priority number (last param) must be >0 and <=127, typically 64
the stack can be changed to a smaller value but note it is unusually easy to eat up the stack. The define size is recommended
please dont change the define as libogc recommends 8k.

Example code can be found here It is best to google pthread and remember not all functionality has been implemented. ogc/lwp*.h has many more functions to be implemented.
