Thank

I don't believe so - but the usual solution to the problem it normally
addresses is to use threads in .NET.

Hi,

As Jon said, and afaik windows doesn't have fork feature - instead you
should use threads.

Forgive me for going off on a tangent with this post here, but I'm just
wondering...

I've done a fair bit of Unix programming in my long and checkered past, and
I've used fork() once in a while. I've done multitasking in mainframe and
micro operating systems, even written OS task schedulers, and used threads
in MS programming, particularly in .Net where they're almost trivially easy.
Is there anyone besides me that thinks that the fork business in Unix, both
from the conceptual viewpoint and the implementation viewpoint, is truly
bizarre?

Just asking...inquiring minds want to know.
