First show us the code you have so far. Second, would it be easier (if not necessarily better) to fork off child processes instead of using threads? Based on the nature of the problem and the code you have, we might tell you to fork off.

[ambrus]: If you want to typeset a manuscript, you can still do much less work then in the manual typesetting ages and get good formatting.
[ambrus]: All with only cheap modern computers and software.
[ambrus]: Something you can have at home and your corner print shop, without a whole printing press's worth of equipment.
