## Overview - DCE Threads Example

The example in this topic shows the use of DCE Threads in a C program that performs a prime number search. The program finds a specified number of prime numbers, then sorts and
displays these numbers. Several threads participate in the search: each thread takes a number (the next one to be checked), sees if it is a prime, records it if it is prime, and then takes another
number, and so on.
This program shows the work crew model of programming (see Introduction to Multithreaded Programming). The workers (threads) increment a number
(**current_num**) to get their next work assignment, which in this case is the same task as before, but with a different number to check for a prime. As a whole, the worker threads are
responsible for finding a specified number of prime numbers, at which point their work is completed.
