Ticket #1959 (closed todo: fixed)
Configure flag for --without-threads
|Reported by:||whiteknight||Owned by:|
The file t/src/atomic.t is invalid if we don't configure and build Parrot with threading support. Threading support is the default, unless we configure with the --without-threads flag. In that case, Parrot is built without thread support and the tests in t/src/atomic.t are invalid and should be skipped.
I don't see a flag in parrot_config which looks like it contains this information. There is a HAS_THREADS flag in parrot_config, but it always returns "1" whether --without-threads or not.
We need a reliable way to determine if Parrot has threading support or not.
