mfukar / terminate-worker-threads.c
Last active May 10, 2024 08:19
C11 code to have a POSIX multithreaded application which signal work completion via a condition variable, and then terminate.
* Demonstration of a way to break out of a multi-threaded program with one "manager" thread and
* many "worker" threads.
* There is the assumption that the work being done is long-standing enough to guarantee that
* all threads have been created and are running prior to one of them completing its assigned work.
* If this is not the case, adjustments to this code have to be made. Better yet, implement and use
* a monitor / barrier.
* The primary use of this is to demonstrate usage of condition variable(s) and cancellation.

Some interview question from VMware. Figure out the problem statement, it's obvious.
import sys
def main():
N = raw_input()
elements = [int(element) for element in' ')]
L, R = 0, len(elements)
# We got ourselves a maximum subarray problem, with inverted semantics.
# The subarray we want to find is the one to flip all the bits in.
