Detailed Description

       A class for managing threads.

       This class provides a portable framework around the tasks of instantiating, starting,
       stopping and joining threads.

       It wraps the underlying native thread-handling toolkit in a transparent manner, to make
       multiplatform threads programming straightforward for the application programmer.
