Im having a progran in c++ witch makes two kinds of threads , lets call them VeThreads and CuThreads.Each kind has many threads identified uniqelly by a certain key.This key can be found only Twice : first time on the VeThreads and the second time on the CuThreads making them a pair of threads.
I want to pass information between those two threads.
these two threads are made after a connection is made ,  each thread with a different network server.
How do I make this?
Should I use Events?
Is link list a correct way to keep the information need to be passed (there is a possibility that few threads of CuThreads are made before the VeThreads made or viseversa )
and if so how do I make it?
Please give me a full answer include a code example.
Thank you.

Sounds like you need a Semaphore or a Monitor.

I think you might want to create an additional level of organization, like a thread-pair manager.  The manager would be a C++ class containing a shared memory area that is protected by a mutex, and it would pass a pointer to itself to the two threads that it spawns.  These threads could send messages back and forth using the manager object.

I would design fns in the thread-manager to SendMessage, CheckMessage, and GetMessage, that would actually get the lock, move the data, and release the lock.

Hope this helps
