How to redirect threads to specific Processor in MP Enviroment

Hi,
I would like to know if it is possible to manage processes/threads to be proceeded by a specific processor in Multi-Core or Multiple Processor enviroment.

The main idea behind is :
I am using diversified programming (A Code and B Code for the same function).
In order to control possible faults in CPU, I would like to let these two
different functions to be proceeeded in two CPUs.

Eg:
Processors:
-----------
Processor A
Processor B


Threads:
-----------
Thread 1   =-------------->Processor A
Thread 2   =-------------->Processor B
Thread 3   =-------------->Processor A
Thread 4   =-------------->Processor B
Thread 5   =-------------->Processor A
      .                                     .
      .                                     .
      .                                     .

Is that possible to practice that kind of programming.


Regards,
Cem IMRE

Here you have some links with more detailed information about setting the cpu affinity, with examples:

Also, there are CPUSETS; perhaps you could use them too.
