Look up _beginthread depending on the compiler that you use it will probably be similar to

_beginthread(pointer_to_func_to_run, NULL, stackSize, Handle);

What system and compiler are you using?

I have used this on linux, windows, and OS/2.

If you're using Linux then try Pthreads!

Use a standard interface so you can port you threading software
around various platforms.

The best available at the moment is pthreads which is available
on Linux & Win32 etc.

The Win32 port of pthreads is @ http://sourceware.cygnus.com/pthreads-win32/

Just search the www for pthreads and you should find
loads of tutorial/reference material.

Yes pthreads works in Windows too...
I'm using pthreads myself with Linux on my dual Celeron and it's just great.

Here's a good link: http://www-rcd.cc.purdue.edu/Paragon/Docs/Intel/Manuals/psug/psug_52.html
