i'm writing a win32 application. I need the code to :
- start a "win32 console application" (a MSDOS EXE file)
- write to its STDIN
- read from its STDOUT
But with a thread, i think, not to "lock" the main application.

Thanks for your help.

No you do not need a thread. Windows is a multitasking operating system
which means that one program does not stop another program from running.

But this has nothing to do with C++, which is the topic of this group. You
should ask on a Windows programming group such as
news:comp.os.ms-windows.program mer.win32. Ask about the CreateProcess Win32
API function, it does what you need.

I am unable to locate a C++ question here. Perhaps you have the wrong
group? Please re-read the welcome message, paying particular attention
to the section on topicality.


My email address is valid, but changes periodically.
To contact me please use the address from a recent posting.

I'm asking about C++ source code and functions to do what i wrote. But
forget, i asked to news:comp.os.ms-windows.program mer.win32

Having trouble with my first forays into threads. Basically, the threads don't seem to be working in parallel (or you might say are blocking). I've boiled my problems to the following short code block and ensuing output. Seems like the output should be all interleaved and of course it's not. Running Python 2.2 from ActiveState on Windows XP (also doesn't work on Windows 2000). Thanks in advance! adeger

Hi I have following problem: I'm creating two threads who are performing some tasks. When one thread finished I would like to restart her again (e.g. new job). Following example demonstrates that. Problem is that when program is started many threads are created (see output section), when only two should be running at any time. Can you please help me to identify me where the problem is?

Hi all, I've got a server that handles a relatively high number of concurrent transactions (on the magnitude of 1000's per second). Client applications establish socket connections with the server. Data is sent and received over these connections using the asynchronous model. The server is currently in beta testing. Sporadically over the course of the day, I'll observe the thread count on the process (via perfmon) start climbing....

Hi all, A question from someone on a website got me thinking about this, and I wondered if anyone could explain this. A System.Threading.Timer object is garbage collected if it has no references to it. But what about threads? If I start a new thread that only does 1+1, is it garbage collected after that? If so, do all threads get garbage collected eventually that are 'done'? And if not, why not? Are there references to the thread that...

Hi, I start a new thread (previous one was "thread timing") because I have isolated my problem. It has nothing to do with calling unmanaged C++ code (I removed it in a test application). I have a thread "_itTaskThread" running. The application is listening on a TCP port. It accepts 2 connection from a client. I simulate a crash on the client side (using "Debug->StopDebugging").

I have noticed how the thread I created just stops running. I have added several exceptions to the thread System.Threading.SynchronizationLockException System.Threading.ThreadAbortException System.Threading.ThreadInterruptedException System.Threading.ThreadStateException to see if I could get more information about why the thread stops running but that code is never executed. Any ideas on how I can debug this?

Using vs2003, vb.net I start a thread, giving it a name before start. Code snippet: 'give each thread a unique name (for later identification) Trunk_Thread.Name = "Trunk_0_Thread" ' allow only 1 thread per line Trunk_Thread.ApartmentState = ApartmentState.STA
by: Charles Law | last post by:
My first thought was to call WorkerThread.Suspend but the help cautions against this (for good reason) because the caller has no control over where the thread actually stops, and it might have a lock pending, for example. I want to be able to stop a thread temporarily, and then optionally resume it or stop it for good.

There's no way to set thread priorities within Python, is there? We have some threads that go compute-bound, and would like to reduce their priority slightly so the other operations, like accessing the database and servicing queries, aren't slowed as much. John Nagle
