    1. I was just noting something general not with reference to your current code.
    2. In that case I might be sure which way is best, I guess you could just stick to your current one.

    I'm guessing you've learned the lesson now, but don't ever assume the order of execution of threads unless you're building a pipeline.

    Outside of your DOS world, your header file is meaningless.

    Yeah, that's true. However, the order of thread execution wasn't on my radar because it didn't matter to the program I thought I was writing. It only started to matter when finding the source of the problem, which were the duplicate keys in the input.
