    It depends on your platform. If you're on Linux, man the fork command.

    search around for pthread examples. fork() just creates a child process

    Hi Happy_Reaper,
    let say I'm using visual C++ v6, how would you suggest? I had never tried multi thread before. so basically I doesn't know how to. Is there anything I can look out for?

    I think windows has pthreads library, maybe not
    try this
    Code:
    #include <pthread.h>
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <stdlib.h>
    
    void *hello(void *arg) {
      printf("hello world\n");
    }
    
    int main() {
      pthread_t thread_block;
      void *status;
    
      if (pthread_create(&thread_block, NULL, hello, NULL) != 0) {
        perror("pthread_create");
        exit(1);
      }
    
      if (pthread_join(thread_block, &status) != 0) {
        perror("pthread_join");
        exit(1);
      }
    
      return 0;
    }
    if not I donno...also this is the C Board, there is also a C++ one which you should probably have asked in since you're using C++
