Hi
the code below compiles and runs, but does not do what I want.
how can I get the code below to print out:
"I am child 1sub thread called."

thanks

******************************************************************
#include <boost/thread/thread.hpp>
#include <string>
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

class Child
{
  string c;
public:
  Child(string x):c(x){ }
  void operator()(){
    cout << c << " sub thread called." << endl;
  }
};

class Parent
{
  string p;
public:
  Parent(string x):p(x){}
  void operator()(){
    cout << p << "thread called." << endl;
    Child c1("I am child 1");
    boost::thread c1t(c1);
  }
};
 
int main(){
  Parent p1("I am parent 1: ");
  boost::thread p1t(p1);
}

not quite clear...

first , cout is not thread safe, the output result is hard to predict.
second, after you create thread, us thread.join to wait thread finish.

like this:

    Child c1("I am child 1");
    boost::thread c1t(c1);
    c1t.join();//wait thread finish

that did not quite fix it. however the fix was to add join() to each of the Parent and Child objects like this

#include <boost/thread/thread.hpp>
#include <string>
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

class Child
{
  string c;
public:
  Child(string x):c(x){ }
  void operator()(){
    cout << c << " sub thread called." << endl;
  }
};

class Parent
{
  string p;
public:
  Parent(string x):p(x){}
  void operator()(){
    cout << p << "thread called." << endl;
    Child c1("I am child 1");
    boost::thread c1t(c1);
    c1t.join();
  }
};
 
int main(){
  Parent p1("I am parent 1: ");
  boost::thread p1t(p1);
  p1t.join();
}
