Light-weight process




<operating system, parallel> (LWP) A single-threaded sub-process which, unlike a thread, has its own process identifier and may also differ in its inheritance and controlling features.

Several operating systems, e.g. SunOS 5.x, provide system calls for creating and controlling LWPs.
