Class Thread.Thread

Method create

Thread.Thread Thread.Thread(function(mixed ... :mixed|void) f, mixed ... args)


This function creates a new thread which will run simultaneously to the rest of the program. The new thread will call the function f with the arguments args. When f returns the thread will cease to exist.

All Pike functions are 'thread safe' meaning that running a function at the same time from different threads will not corrupt any internal data in the Pike process.


The returned value will be the same as the return value of this_thread() for the new thread.


This function is only available on systems with POSIX or UNIX or WIN32 threads support.
