c++ queue & thread pool

Hi Experts,

I want to create a reliable thread pool that will execute jobs from a queue.  I probably should not reinvent the wheel, but I'm not sure if something good exists.

- Is there already some implementation that I can use here?
- If not, any suggestions on the algorithm?

Thank you,
Mike

Windows already comes with built-in supportr for that with mechanisms like 'QueueUserWorkItem()' (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms684957(v=vs.85).aspx), see e.g. http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/33352/Full-Multi-thread-Client-Server-Socket-Class-with ("Full Multi-thread Client/Server Socket Class with ThreadPool") on how to make use of that. Alternatively, chec out http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/6863/Windows-Thread-Pooling-and-Execution-Chaining ("Windows Thread Pooling and Execution Chaining") which accomplishes the same in a little bit more C++ way.
