We did that by using a queue to feed stuff to a libwww server thread.

Here are the basic steps to create the windows messagine needed:

1.  Declare a new window proc 'mywinproc'
2.  Create a window via CreateWindow with the mywinproc as the winproc
3.  Replace the libwww dispatch window handle with your new window handle
using
'SetWindowLong' from win32 and HTEventList_getWinHandle() from libwww.
4.  put appropriate logic in your new winproc to handle custom messages from
your client threads (WM_ENQ) and pass the rest of the WM messages to the
original libwww winproc

It works really, well, blazingly fast and no thread conflicts.

thx

Subject: Multithreaded post


I have a requirement to asynchronously send post request and recevie the
replies.  Right now I am having a thread pool where each thread send a
post request and waits for reply.  the problem with libwww is that the
pseudo threads allow me to send multiple requests but they require me to
do HTEventList_loop, which blocks not allowing further requests to be
sent.  I want to keep on sending requests and asynchronously receive
response.  does anybody have a nice solution to this problem?
