in thread Boolean Thread::Semaphore ?

I am doing that, the work finding thread is putting the work it finds into a Thread::Queue object.

The reason I want to use a semaphore as well is because the work finder runs much faster than the workers, but is quite expensive in terms of resource consumption.

If there was not a mechanism to pause the work finder when there is enough work in the queue, it would build a queue of millions of items and waste a lot of memory and other resources in the process.
