Hi Experts,

      I need to know the right way of sharing data between different threads.  I have a main thread which is going to spawn about 10 different instances of the same worker thread.  These worker threads are going to collect information and put them each into a seperate instance (or array member) of the same structure.  So I would like to end up with an array of the structure (myStructure[10]) whose members were populated by ten different threads simultaniously.  What's the excepted way of doing something like this?

Thanks,
axnst2

Basically, there is no magic on this other than ensuring only 1 thrwead is accessing your structure at any given 1 time.  There are a few ways of doing this using thread synchronization keywords amd classes.  The following article explains better, read all 4 pages
