    What system call use the CreateThread Function of borland?

    In an above post is commented the following one"

    With __beginthreadex(), the multithreaded versions of the std libs are linked instead of the standard versions......then it calls CreateThread() to create the thread itself.......

    my doubt is that what is the difference between the call beginthreadex and the call CreateTrhead of Borland. Or in another way , what system CAll uses Borland when you create a class TThread?

    thanks very much

    CreateThread is WinAPI function
    beginthreadex is CRT function - it initializes CRT vars for using in MT envirounmemnt and then calls CreateThread function to actually create the thread
    All problems in computer science can be solved by another level of indirection,
    except for the problem of too many layers of indirection.

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
