Detailed Description

Thread base class: Override this to create new threads.

To create a thread, override this class. Store data as members with accessors to set input and read output. Override the Run() method to do the actual work. e.g. the following class implements a thread which can sum a list of numbers.

class Thread_test : public Thread_base {
  class Data : public std::vector<int> {
    Data() {}
    Data( std::vector<int> v ) : std::vector<int>(v) {}

  void Run() {
    sum = 0;
    while ( 1 ) {
        int c = current++;
        if ( c >= data_.size() ) break;
        sum += data_[c];
  static void set_data( Data d ) { data_ = d; }
  static Data data_;
  static int current;
  int sum;
