C/++/# Good books on threading/processes?

  1. Mar 26, 2017 #1
    I want to learn more about the hardware and OS-level details about how threads and processes work. Can anyone here direct me to some good reads?

    Thanks for the thread! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post? The more details the better.

    You didn't specify which OS. From your previous posts, I think you are using Windows. Here are some links to more advanced books on that architecture.
