  CPSC 331 Sleeping Barber Solution
Meanwhile, the barber cannot proceed past the "waiting for customers" stage until signalled by the customer, which occurs after the customer has sat in the barber chair.
The barber cannot proceed past the "waiting for customers" stage again until the next customer is seated in the barber's chair.
Each customer signals the barber when they've sat down, and using semaphores means that the order in which the customer signals and the barber waits doesn't matter.

 Sleeping barber problem - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In computer science, the sleeping barber problem is a classic inter-process communication and synchronization problem between multiple operating system processes.
This problem involves only one barber, and it is therefore also called the single sleeping barber problem.
A multiple sleeping barbers problem is similar in the nature of implementation and pitfalls, but has the additional complexity of coordinating several barbers among the waiting customers.

Sleeping Barber Problem: Many books, including our textbook, state variations of the Sleeping Barber Problem, which was first proposed by Edsger W. Dijkstra in 1968.
The barber sleeps (or daydreams) when no customer customer is waiting (and is not in the barber's own chair).
If at least one barber is sleeping, the customer looks at a sign, wakes up the barber who has been sleeping the longest, and sits in that barber's chair (after the barber has stood up).

 91.308 Assignment 7: Threads and the Sleeping Barber Problem
When a customer is available, the barber wakes up and gives him a haircut, and the customer leaves.
The Sleeping Barber problem is a classical IPC (inter process communication) problem that models waiting queues (e.g., a telephone service call center).
The implementation is written in C and uses pthreads to implement the customer and barber processes.

The second readers and writers problem requires that threads wishing to read must wait behind threads that are already waiting to write.
The second is that the barber does not actually cut hair himself, but has a minion do it on his behalf.
With this change, the sleeping barber resembles a device driver, the minion resembles the device, and the customers resemble I/O-requesting processes.

 Semaphore (programming) Summary
In the 1960s, the problem of mutual exclusion in computing environments, where processors had to be restricted in their access to shared resources, arose.
Many semaphore implementations also have "thundering herd" problems and lose atomicity if there is a significant amount of contention between processes; the implementation can get overwhelmed with P requests and behave in incorrect ways, thus destroying the functionality expected of the semaphore design.
Semaphores are the classic solution to the dining philosophers problem, although they do not prevent all deadlocks.

Sleeping Barber Problem: The shop has a barber, a barber chair, and a waiting room with several chairs.
When a barber finishes cutting a customer's hair, the barber fetches another customer from the waiting room if there is a customer, or stands by the barber chair and daydreams if the waiting room is empty.
If the barber is busy but there is a waiting room chair available, the customer takes a seat.

If additional customers arrive while the barber is cutting a customer's hair, they either sit down (if there are empty chairs) or leave the shop (if all chairs are full).
When the barber is through with a customer, he looks to the waiting room to see if there are any more customers.
If there are, the next customer is told that the barber is ready, so the customer then goes to the barber for a haircut.

Problem with this is that its not wise to give processes control over interrupts; you may not be able to predict exactly what will happen.
