    Hey how do you branch stuff off?

    like say you had an update clock function and wanted to do scanf at the same time
             /  \
            /    \
      Scanf   Clock (updated on screen)
            \      if clock = 100, then continue
             \    /
              \  /
    Multithreading, I think it is...

    Multithreading is correct, Brian. It is platform dependant. On UNIX/Linux systems, this is accomplished using pthreads. On Windows systems, I believe they are called WinThreads (not a windows guy, myself). I thought you would be out of luck trying threads in DOS (as your signature implies), but apparently there are DOS multithreading libraries out there (search Google for "DOS multithreading").
