    Timer Multithreading in Microsoft C

    Hi C Gurus,
    I am a database person on UNIX and programmed in a number 4 gl, but new to Microsoft c - I need to understand timers, multiple threads if any one have simple examples of codes of:
    thread that sleeps for a set time, and upon waking, forces the main running program to exit/ examples of WaitForSingleObject.

    Thanks.

    Timer Multithreading in Microsoft C

    Hi,
    Thanks for the reply perhaps I was not clear - I was referring to the Command Line Microsoft c compiler (cl) part of visual Studio 2008 as "microsoft c"

    MSDN is your manual.

    The MS CRT (C run time) has its own thread creation interface (on top of the OS interface CreateThread):

    Timer Multithreading in Microsoft C

    Sorry - I don't understand the meaning of your picture - are you saying refer to the
    book if so then this book is so old and only available from specialist shop.

    What I am looking for is a sample code to set a time from a main program
    when the time is up them it should interrupt the main program (processeing user input input rquests)

    I think the point is you need to consult microsoft's documentation, which does exist and is available on line.

    If you have trouble getting the commands to work, then you can post your code and someone may help you with it, but you do need to make some effort to do some research of your own. Or else try:

    Rent A Coder: How Software Gets Done -- Home of the worlds' largest number of completed software projects
    C programming resources:
    GNU C Function and Macro Index -- glibc reference manual
    The C Book -- nice online learner guide
    Current ISO draft standard
    CCAN -- new CPAN like open source library repository
    3 (different) GNU debugger tutorials: #1 -- #2 -- #3
    cpwiki -- our wiki on sourceforge
