This pointer qustion!

P: 42

As you know static member functions do not have a this pointer. so instead, what shall i do?

for example ... consider I want to call

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. pthread_create(&thID,NULL,classA::B, (void *) this);
and it is called in an static method so instead of this what can I put??

pthread_create() requires the address of a function with a void* argument that returns a void*:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. void*  (*MyFunction)(void*);
So write a function:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. void* ATest(void*)
  2. {
  3.     /*call your class static function here */
  4. }
and use ATest on the pthread_create() call.
