    Isn't the answer to all your boost questions on www.boost.org ?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    Unfortunately, to get an answer, you first have to form a comprehensible sentence.

    Also, my best guess at what you want to ask is not a question that's about experience.

    I believe he's asking about boost::signals... but who knows?
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Aahhh!

    There isn't. Boost.Thread doesn't offer a direct equivalent of the WinAPI Event synchronization object, for several reasons. One, it would be very difficult to implement in POSIX systems, which don't offer such a thing either. Second, the event object has been a continuous source of problems in Win32 programming, to the point where some question whether the object might be flawed in concept.

    You should redesign so that you can use either a condition or a barrier instead.
