Is there a way to kill a thread from the process that generated it?
I would like to do it both on Windows and Unix (sgi irix) operating
I know that this should be avoided in general but I have
a computation loop that I wrote in C to optimize speed and for
reasons I do not want to put in the inner loop checks for conditions
that will make the
thread exit gracefully.
