Title: System and method for thread creation and memory management in an object-oriented programming environment

Abstract: A system and a method for thread creation where only copied threads share the same stack location for execution, so unrelated threads have individual stack space and can be executed concurrently in multi-processor system. Also, the copy operation of the stack frame is only necessary among the copied threads, so the speed of context switching among individual threads is fast. This operation can be a simple page table modification in the virtual memory management mechanism for further speed up.
