I am working on a program, and I need to implement some threads.  It needs to compile under both windows and linux.  Right now I have the windows threads working using CreateThread.  What I'm looking for is a good way to do it under linux, that is compatible with the way it is done in windows.  (Basically all globals are shared and stacks are seperate.)  I looked at fork, and that looked wrong, because there is seperate global areas.  I then looked at __create(), and that looked like it would work, except that I couldn't figure out how/where to allocate and deallocate memory for the stack.  I've heard there is a pthread_create that might work also.  I'll give full points to whoever can post some small sample code that I can get to compile, that creates a few threads, accesses some global and local varibles, then quits correctly.
Thanks

This page has an example of 2 threads, accessing a global var through a semaphore.

There is a page for linux threads with the library and pointers to several tutorials (including the above :)
