Re: [fluid-dev] I removed GLIB dependency from my build.

TinyCThread looks good. Even though they only support Win32 and Pthreads they implement the C11 API. So we could move to C11:

#ifdef __STDC_NO_ATOMICS__
  #error "Compiler has no C11 atomics"

#ifdef __STDC_NO_THREADS__
  #include <tinycthread.h>
  #include <threads.h>

This however might be the end of OS/2 support. Compiling on Win32 only with MinGW or CygWin. Would this really make the Windows users life easier as originally intended by the glib removal?

FWIW I had been working on removing glib two years ago or a bit less
(dang, was it really that long ago?), as this is basically why I
stopped when I was almost done: it really wasn't maintainable.

Realistically, I do think there's literally no major alternative. I
mean, for atomics there's libatomic_ops:


which was built for and is still used by the Boehm GC. If Windows is
the only barrier to C11 adoption, maybe TinyCThread could fill in for
the mean time? https://tinycthread.github.io/
