A paper on ScTL titled Building an open-source Solaris-compatible threads library appeared in the Proceedings of the FREENIX Track: 2001 USENIX Annual Technical Conference (FREENIX '01) in June 2001. A copy of the paper is available at http://www.opensource.compaq.com/the_source/linux_papers/scl_solaris.htm.
ScTL was originally developed as part of the Solaris Compatibility Libraries (SCL) for Tru64 UNIX. The web-site http://www.tru64unix.compaq.com/complibs/index.html describes SCL, and includes links to SCL documentation and to download a kit for Tru64 UNIX.
ScTL has been ported from Tru64 UNIX to Linux (Red Hat 7.0, on Intel x86 and Alpha) and FreeBSD (4.2, on Intel x86), and as a result the source code should more readily port to other UNIX systems. The ScTL source code is now available for download from http://sourceforge.net/projects/sctl/.
Note that ScTL was known as STL, but for uniqueness on Sourceforge it had to be named ScTL. The ScTL sources still use STL as the project acronym.
ScTL, like SCL, is provided as-is, with no formal support. However we are keen for feedback and we will attemp to respond to queries on a best-efforts basis. Send your queries to email@example.com. Alternatively, use the ScTL developers' mailing-list firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss ScTL development issues.
The original SCL development, and the port of ScTL to Linux and FreeBSD, was sponsored by Compaq.
The port of ScTL to HP-UX was sponsored by HP.
The ScTL open-source project is hosted on Sourceforge.
