|ML Threads - SML/NJ with mutual exclusion primitives similar to those in
Modula-2+ and Mesa. Written by Greg Morrisett
Lightweight threads are created using fork. They are pre-emptively scheduled and communicate via shared memory which can be protected by a "mutex" (monitor).
Implementations for Motorola 68020, SPARC and MIPS and VAX- and MIPS-based multiprocessors.
