Multiprocessing
Apple's multiprocessing APIs provide support for both co-operatively scheduled tasks and preemptively scheduled tasks. The APIs allow applications to create symmetrically scheduled preemptive tasks that can be run on a single processor machine, and that take full advantage of multiple processors when they are installed.
