Detailed Description

Factory that creates IThread instances.

Thread creation needs merely the main loop function that will be called.

Note the method that can return the number of cores in case a multi-cores architecture is used. This is useful for automatically configure tools for using the maximum number of available cores for speeding up the algorithm.
