    Depends entirely upon your operating system, and your compilers support for what ever features it offers. You fail to mention either.

    No. There are operating systems which have no concept of threads; C is a very general language and so it doesn't cover system-specific features. Things like graphics, sound, threads, etc. are all system-specific and compiler-specific.

    Pthreads for Linux is a fairly common C threading library.
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    Your question is too vague to answer considering the complexities of different compilers and operating systems.

    The generic answer is
    there is no best way, only the ways that
    1) you understand
    2) work correctly
    3) do the job asked
