Threads and synchronization

Is there a way to start individual threads in C++? What about synchronization? Are there any equivalents to java threads and synchronized procedures?  If so, what are they called and what are the equivalents?

Thanks

yes you can start threads in C++, what OS you looking to do it in.  As for synchronized, they may have some, but you can always write your own.

see,

for a cross-platform ( i.e. os independent ) solution

[ about boost.org :: boost.org is an organization supported by many c++ standards committee members and provides 100% free, peer-reviewed, cross-platform libraries.  many of the boost libraries, such as their smart pointer library, are already in the drafts of the next revision of the c++ standard ]
