- thread-start! threadprocedure
Makes thread runnable. The thread must be a new thread. thread-start! returns the thread.
(let ((t (thread-start! (make-thread (lambda () (write 'a)))))) (write 'b) (thread-join! t)) ==> ''unspecified'' ''after writing'' ab ''or'' ba
NOTE: It is useful to separate thread creation and thread activation to avoid the race condition that would occur if the created thread tries to examine a table in which the current thread stores the created thread. See the last example of thread-terminate! which contains mutually recursive threads.
