Dear Sir/Madam,
I have to write a multi-threaded application for windows and as I am relatively new to the field, I am not sure which thread API to use. Can anyone please tell me what will be an easy library for me to start coding as I am new to this field. Also I was informed that for Unix there is a library called pthread. Does a version of that exist for windows. If so could you please provide that URL where I could download it.

Thanks in anticipation,
Gauraw Singh Chandel

From "MultiThreading Applications in Win32"
If you are using only Windows API use CreateThread().
Otherwise use _beginthreadex() - this will properly load the the C-Runtime dlls.  
For MFC, use CWinThread.
