Missionaries and Cannibals

A particular river crossing is shared by both cannibals and missionaries. A boat is used to cross the river, but it only seats three people, and must always carry a full load. In order to guarantee the safety of the missionaries, you cannot put one missionary and two cannibals in the same boat (because the cannibals would gang up and eat the missionary), but all other combinations are legal. Represent each cannibal and each missionary with a thread. Your solution must include two procedures: MissionaryArrives() and CannibalArrives(), called by a missionary or cannibal when it arrives at the riverbank. The procedures arrange the arriving missionaries and cannibals into safe boatloads; once the boat is full, one thread calls RowBoat and after the call to RowBoat, the three procedures then return. There should also be no undue waiting: missionaries and cannibals should not wait if there are enough of them for a safe boatload. There are no specific constraints on the input form at or the output form a t.
