multithread in 98
i'm new to windows programming, and i want to know how to create new threads, the only thing i can find is on msdn is about createthread()... but apperently thats for windows server editions or whatever.
i think i read somewhere that winmain() requests a new process slot or something like that, but i know i need more info than that...
can anyone here help me?
You can use the API CreateThread() as long as you're on Windows 95 or later.
The Microsoft sample DPchat is a good demonstration of using createthread(). It also creates 2 events for the thread and might be worthy of study for you. It's in the the pre-DX8 sdk packages and can the files can be downloaded indiviually from Icarus.
You should be careful using the CreateThread() API function if you use the standard library functions. You can introduce memory leaks.
I have a basic MT tutorial starting here...
