in thread Threads Help

I named my script CFDeluxe for Cluster F*** Deluxe. So rather than you combing through my spaghetti code. I just need an example of threads where each thread opens in a new console although I am starting to get the feeling this is not possible

    On Linux, each console (let's say xterm to keep it simple) is an independent process, and is connected to its own pty (pseudo tty). You can open an xterm with a special command (as opposed as running a shell). If you want to display data coming from a thread to your xterm, you could use named pipes (created with mkfifo); the working thread could write to the named pipe, and the script run from the xterm would display what's coming into the named pipe.
    I don't have any code at hand for an example, but it's quite easy to do.
