Cleanly exiting multi thread application on SIGINT

Is the following the most elegant way to exit a multi-threaded
application on a Ctrl-C? I am a complete beginner and would have
thought there was some way of doing it without having to use while 1:
pass, but have yet to find a way.

N.B. exit() is a method for cleanly exiting the thread using a queue.

Many thanks

Jon

def main:
wt = workerThread()
wt.setDaemon(Tr ue)
wt.start()
ct = counterThread()
ct.setDaemon(Tr ue)
ct.start()
try:
while 1:
pass
except KeyboardInterru pt:
wt.exit()
ct.exit()

you could at least insert a time.sleep(1), to avoid busy-looping.

I thought there was some sort of wait() method in the threading module, but
I was mistaken. Maybe:

while threading.activ eCount():
time.sleep(0.01 )

?

Hi I am developing a Dot net application (involving image processing) on a uni processor. It works well on my machine. I then take all my code on a multi processor, build and run the application there. There is performance degradation. The usual performance of the application on MP machine is better than that of uni processor machine. But the performance of MP degrades when it comes to the multi-threaded part of the application. I am...

Hello everyone. I'm creating a simple bingo game. After the board is drawn on the screen, I try to get input from the user. If they enter an 'm', the application marks the random letter and number on the bingo board. If they type 'b', the application checks for bingo... you get the point. Now, if no input is received within x seconds, I would like to go on with the rest of my application (drawing another letter and number, printing the...

I have a .NET console application that is kicked off by a .NET Windows service.

The console app creates a delegate to do some work while the main thread waits on a ManualResetEvent to...

Hi all, I'm putting together a simple help module for my applications, using html files stored in the application directory somewhere.

Hi All, I think I'm missing a basic bit of understanding with modal forms. This is the problem I have: 1. User clicks button on form, event handler throws an exception. 2. In catch block a form is shown modally (i.e. errForm.ShowDialog ()). 3. When the user closes the dialog the form image stays on the screen and the app stops painting.
