Threading in a list

RE: Threading in a list
Ok i have a new question regarding threading...atm i make several threads but those threads are using the same object from a class which is e.g the world class. But now i dont know if EE locks down a thread and reopens it after a thread is done with it. Cause if multiple threads are gonna access a function at the same time can result in a disaster...

So my question is... does EE use locks in his threads?

There is always evil somewhere, you just have to look for it properly.

RE: Threading in a list
Ok but how does this exactly work? Is this instead of Thread? or do i need to call CritSect inside the thread which is needed to lock/unlock?

RE: Threading in a list
Ok i understand how it works... but when i call e.g:

CritSect crit;

crit.on();
//do something
crit.off();

When its in use and another thread calls the same function but of course its locked... does EE wait till its open again? or do i need to make a loop for it?

Do i need the same CritSect object in every thread/class where its needed? I don't think its possible but im not sure..

Ok but what about when i call crit.on() and the other thread does the same... is EE waiting till its open again or does it skip and leave it that way?
