Title:

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 thread objects 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 Threads.

Slots:

name:
the name associated with this thread. 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.

Constructors:

thread()
