Try to stop thread Using flag


I countered some problems when I try to stop threads using flag.
These are my some important codes:

##### mythread.py
def run(self):
while self.addr != '': ### text waiting for processing
if not self.CONTINUE: ### flag for thread ,means to exit
the RUN func or not
print self.name
post(self.param s, self.addr) ### func to process the text
self.addr = furl.readline() .strip()
###### myapp.py
def OnEndProcess(se lf, event):
if self.threadList :
for thread in self.threadList :
thread.CONTINUE = False
##### this func is an EVENT processor. When I press the END BUTTON ,
it will be caused.

def OnBeginProcess( self, event):
for i in range(num):
if lines[i]!= '':
thread =
mythread.mythre ad('Thread'+str (i),lines[i], params)
self.threadList .append(thread)

print '\n Starting Threads'

for i in self.threadList :
###### this func is an EVENT processor. When I press the BEGIN BUTTON
, it will be caused.

By test I found this truely acts as supposed:thread exited the *run()*
func. But when I press the BEGIN BUTTON again, an Error was caused:
thread already started.
It's said that if the *run()* func is finished, the thread will become
dead. So how to interprete this?
Any solution?

The Python documentation states:

start( )
Start the thread's activity.

This must be called at most once per thread object. It arranges for
the object's run() method to be invoked in a separate thread of control.
So you cannot start() one Thread object a second time, you have to
create a new one. But as you don't move any thread out of your list in
the OnEndProcess function all stopped Thread objects are indeed
restarted by your OnBeginProcess as they are still in self.threadlist .

Furthermore: you should wait in our OnEndProcess function and check
whether all thread have ended indeed by calling Thread.join().
Otherwise some threads mights still be running indeed.

Hope I could make it clear.
