RT++ is a software package that provides higher-order threads in the programming language C++. Its features include a type-safe functional thread interface, lazy thread creation, garbage-collected types (lists, arrays, pointer structures) and controlled non-determinism (thread bags). Threads are first-order objects that can be used like any other objects and that are automatically reclaimed when they are not referenced any more. The package has been ported to numerous types of mono-processors and shared memory multiprocessors and can be easily embedded into existing application frameworks.
