Re: [Help-glpk] Thread Safety of GLPK

Hi all,

thanks for your answers.
I updated to version 4.63, but I keep getting errors such as "segmentation 
fault" or "glp_free: memory allocation error”.

I have a function, with a few parameters in input, which creates the MIP and 
solve it (attached the function which creates the MIP).
This function is called by multiple threads with different parameters and they 
do not share any data.
As soon as I call the function within a mutex lock/unlock everything works fine.

I compiled the GLPK package with Clang/LLVM 4.9 which has support for TLS, so I 
think everything should be fine.
Do I need to do something else to make GLPK thread safe?
