Not to my knowledge. But there is a way around it.  Create the function 
that you will pass into create thread ( this will be your relay function 
).  For the optional parameter to create_thread pass in the pointer to your 
class that contains the class function you wish to call inside the 
thread.  Then inside your relay function that you passed into 
create..thread reverse cast the parameter to your class object and call the 
memeber function.


void pthread_fork()
         TYourClass *yourClass = new TYourClass();  // class containing the 
meber func

         // create a new thread with that will execute realyFunc
         // the optional parameter is a pointer to the TYourClass object

         pthread_create(&irq_thread,NULL,(void *)&relayFunc,yourClass);

void relayFunc(void *ptr)
         TYourClass *yourClass;

         // If the thread parameter is valid
                 // reverse cast it as a TYourClass object
                 yourClass = (TYourClass *) ptr;

                 // Call it's member


Let me know if this works for you.
