At a Glance
Picotm is a system-level transaction manager. It provides transactional semantics for low-level and operating-system functionality. It's flexible and extensible to cover exactly your requirements. Error handling and thread isolation are provided by picotm, all you have to implement is the application logic.
Picotm is implemented in plain C and is well-suited for implementing applications and firmware that is secure, reliable and thread-safe; yet easy to develop. This makes picotm well-suited for multi-threaded and fault-tolerant software.

News and Updates
The updated TM module in version 0.10.0 of picotm contains a significant bug in the way it handles individual transactional memory bytes. Until this problem has been resolved, I revert the download URL to picotm 0.9.0.
I’ll provide a bug fix ASAP. Please use picotm 0.9.0 in the meantime.
Version 0.10.0 of picotm has been released today. It includes support for single-byte Transactional Memory, fast discards of free’d transactional memory, Valgrind-instrumented testing, and much more.Read more
Recently, I uploaded a demo application for picotm to GitHub. It reads random data from the operating system, sorts it into a number of buffers, and visualizes the buffer content on the terminal. A posting in my blog has the details.
