- thread - an S level class that represents the internal
object that performs the necessary actions for a thread.
This primarily allows us to establish methods
for generic functions based on
in the signature.
Objects of this class contain very little information
themselves but act more as pointers to private/non-accessible
data that must be accessed exclusively via functions.
For a more complete description and discussion of S
user level threads, see
- the name associated with this
The internal storage for this object that is used
in most calls related to this object is stored
in an internal table with this string/identifier
as its key. Where a thread object is needed,
the corresponding character string can be supplied.
