    Threads question

    Hi,
    I am willing to use threads in my program combined with winsock32 library.
    I work under Windows XP, using the mingw compiler.
    I have no idea about what i need (libraries etc..) and where to start, google was helpful but not enough.
    Are there any guidelines that you might give me?
    Thanks..

    Since you're using Windows:

    If you're looking for something perhaps a little more portable, there are some libraries out there that support threads on multiple systems to a greater extent. One such example is pthreads. There is a Windows version of that library floating around.
