2018-11-14win32: replace pthread_cond_*() with much simpler codeLoo Rong Jie
The Win32 CONDITION_VARIABLE has better performance and is easier to maintain, as the code is a lot shorter now (the semantics of the CONDITION_VARIABLE matches the pthread_cond_t very well). Note: CONDITION_VARIABLE is not available in Windows XP and below, but the declared minimal Windows version required to build and run Git for Windows is Windows Vista (which is also beyond its end-of-life, but for less long than Windows XP), so that's okay.

2013-04-28compat/win32/pthread.c: Fix a sparse warningRamsay Jones
Sparse issues a 'Using plain integer as NULL pointer' warning when initializing an pthread_t structure with an '{ 0 }' initializer. The first field of the pthread_t structure has type HANDLE (void *), so in order to suppress the warning, we replace the initializer expression with '{ NULL }'.

2010-01-30Implement pthread_cond_broadcast on WindowsJohannes Sixt
See, section "The SignalObjectAndWait solution". But note that this implementation does not use SignalObjectAndWait (which is needed to achieve fairness, but we do not need fairness). Note that our implementations of pthread_cond_broadcast and pthread_cond_signal require that they are invoked with the mutex held that is used in the pthread_cond_wait calls.

2010-01-17MSVC: Windows-native implementation for subset of Pthreads APIAndrzej K. Haczewski
This patch implements native to Windows subset of pthreads API used by Git. It allows to remove Pthreads for Win32 dependency for MSVC, msysgit and Cygwin. [J6t: If the MinGW build was built as part of the msysgit build environment, then threading was already enabled because the pthreads-win32 package is available in msysgit. With this patch, we can now enable threaded code unconditionally.] Signed-off-by: Andrzej K. Haczewski <> Signed-off-by: Johannes Sixt <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
