in reply to Threading in a loop

Your concept is to have two threads, one of which modifies the variable, and the other immediately prints out the new value. Unfortunately, multi-threaded programs don't work like that. Without any communication between the threads, one thread will modify the variable 0 or more times, then the other will print the variable o or more times, and back and forth. There are no guarantees.

If you want to display what is happening with a variable, you should 'tie' it to a class, as described in I believe you would only need to implement a STORE() routine, which would print out the current value of the variable. That way, modifying the variable would cause the value to be displayed.

As Occam said: Entia non sunt multiplicanda praeter necessitatem.
