    Cool how do i use a thread to do this...

    Hi,

    I am making a program that uploads a file. While it is uploading the program stops responding.

    I want to do all of my ftp stuff in a seperate thread. So basically the program is always responding.

    I have no experince with threads, so could someone show me how to create a thread and do stuff within it.

    Thanks in advance

    tsk,tsk,tsk - _beginthreadex(). I haven't used it in so long I think I'd need petzold's to do it There's also a function which makes windows and winsock play nice together...I forget what it's called (sorry!) I think it's in my favorites list somewhere...lemme find it...I'll post it when I do.

    WSAAsyncSelect() is the function...I got it from here http://world.std.com/~jimf/papers/sockets/winsock.html if you need an example. here's a search I did with msdn.microsoft.com, but it didn't come out ith too many results, just some examples and some MFC initializations of it:

    hope that helps!
