    Question thread termination

    im in the process of creating a bot like irc client to hold my channels while on irc. It does everything right except when it gets to the end of a seperate thread. This thread receives info from the server and searches it for a PING message, and if it finds one, it sends it back in a PONG message.
    Now it works ok mainly, but when its over, it doesnt want to terminate so after it sends the ping, it time's out. Anyone have any idea whats wrong? jagwir3d@hotmail.com is my email address if you want source code, just email me.

    How about increasing the KEEP ALIVE value for that socket?

    You'd do better picking a section of your code that is relevant to your question, and posting it here...
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]
