Hi. I'm not too advanced a programmer. I've heard of, but never looked at or used, threads.
What are they?
What are they for?
How do you use them?
Are they worth using?
Like I said, I'm not that advanced. I can write applications that do what they're supposed to do, but I was a Pascal programmer and then a VB programmer and ended up back on the 4GL's after that. Any help - especially small samples of different type of threads - would be VERY appreciated.
