Programming :: Create A Separate Thread For Program Which Basically Polls Using The Read Command?

Sep 28, 2010

I'm trying to create a separate thread for my program which basically polls using the read command. However this new thread seems to block the main thread, anyone know why this could happen.

In main I call this function pthread_create(&mainEventThread, NULL, GenericEventThread, NULL);

which calls
/*New threads start function */
void *GenericEventThread()
short int i, nError = -1;


I've used pthread_self to check that a new thread is being created, so why is the while loop in one thread blocking the main thread from running, I haven't used the join function anywhere in my code.

Programming :: Create The Thread Which Runs Then Drops Out?

Mar 11, 2010

I hope someone can help me with this. I need to call the same thread multiple times, but only run one thread at a time. So what I do is create the thread which runs then drops out. Run the main loop and after some time pthread_create the same thread again. So in pseudo code


I always presumed if I run a thread and it reaches with a pthread_exit, then the thread was destroyed? However I've found that after I've created the thread several 100 times the programme crashes? So can anyone advise how I call the same thread over and over?

I am going to use "pthread_setaffinity_np" to bind a thread to a specific core. My application has two threads. I have used mutex to assign a specific id to each thread and then bind that thread to a core different from another core. but it seems that the os assigns both thread to one core.What should I do to bind each thread to a specific core?

Unless your distro has taken care of it Centos 5.5, you'll need to create a user with a password and read/write privileges for program database. You can do this using the MySQL command line client if you are familiar with it. Well I am not familiar with it, so I wam wondering how to do it. As well when I run

mysql - p program </usr/share/program/mysql.sql>

It asks for a password. how do i find out this password.

Programming :: Pthread - Take String From The Command Line And Creates A Thread To Print The String

May 3, 2011

I've been trying to understand pthread in C a little better. So I made a simple program that takes in a string from the command line and creates a thread to print the string. I've looked online and copied the basic concepts but there are something things I'm confused about. The programs works just fine, but I have questions. Here's what I have so far.


One thing I'd like to know is why the 3rd argument in the pthread_create function which is my SendMessage function needs to be typecasted to a void pointer and then send the address of the function. Also as for the 4th argument, I would see typecasting to void pointer in some of the pthread examples I saw online, but in my case I'm passing a char pointer, would this be correct? In which case would I ever want to pass a void pointer?

Do I need a pthread_exit(NULL) in my main and in the SendMessage function? If so, why? I added the sleep() function so that I could let the pthread_exit function in my SendMessage function execute first. I simply saw that the online examples on pthread had pthread_exit() in both locations.

Programming :: Create A RS232 C Program That Executes A Series Of Commands Down The Line To A Robot?

Jan 5, 2011

I am trying to create a RS232 C program that executes a series of commands down the line to a robot. Everything seems to work fine, except any sequential write to the serial port. At first I thought it was the UART's buffer being filled too fast, but even with a 50 uS delay it still throws the error.

Here is my code:

#include <termios.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <fcntl.h>
#include <sys/signal.h>
#include <sys/types.h>

Programming :: Unix Programming - Single Thread Server Can Support Exactly 2 Clients At Once

Sep 28, 2010

A simple TCP based chat server could allow users to use any TCP client (telnet, for example) to communicate with each other. For this question you should consider a single process, single thread server that can support exactly 2 clients at once, the server simply forwards whatever is sent from one client to the other (in both directions). Your server must not insist on any specific ordering of messages as soon as something is sent from one client it is immediately forwarded to the other client. As soon as either client terminates the connection the server can exit

Programming :: Can't Find Command, But Program Is Installed?

May 14, 2010

WindowsDude is back on the dark side of the web, the linux world, and he has encountered yet another impassable problem !There's a compiler mpicc, probably installed on the network at some location let's say /network/bin So when I write mpicc main.c I get the "can't find command" (or similar) error. Somehow it's supposed to work anyway. I think I need one of those magic commands to make it work. But the question is; which word will make it all happen? (I thought the DOS days were over!) I guess I could use the full path (provided that that binary really is in that folder), I want to bind that executable at that location to the much shorter mpicc.

General :: Create A Signal Handler Thread To Handle SIGALRM Signals?

Jan 19, 2010

I'm trying to create a signal handler thread to handle SIGALRM signals. The main thread calls the following function before creating any other threads


pthread_t Timer::Init(long _clock_interval_musec)
// Set interval.
clock_interval = _clock_interval_musec;
// This is called while in a single threaded environment.


clock_interval is 50.

Is the timer not firing? Did I not set my interval correctly? Did I not proper block the signals ensuring the that the default handler would not take care of them?
