    You need an API to do this, as it's highly platform dependant.

    You can use the Win32 API for threading and playing sounds if you're using a windows machine... #include <windows.h>

    Look up the functions "PlaySound()" and "CreateThread()" on msdn.microsoft.com

    In C++ you are better off using beginthread (or beginthreadex) instead of CreateThread......these functions are pretty dependant on the compiler to support...but most do...

    See here for a recent discussion

    >>> instead of CreateThread

    Yeah, avoid CreateThread(), it can, in some cases, cause small memory leaks if you use the standard library functions.

    Also, beginthreadex() may be called beginthreadNT() if you are using some versions of Borland compilers.

    If you are using Linux or any *NIX, the threading model is a little different, search google for "pThreads".
