Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: anybody using [ns_thread begindetached]?

Posted by Andrew Piskorski on
Yes, I was at least partially mis-remembering what the ns_thread docs say. According to those you do need to call "ns_thread wait" on non-detached threads. Whether a detached thread counts toward the configured maxthread limit or not is unspecified in the docs. Should be easy to test empirically, I never needed to though.

What do you mean ns_thread begindetached is "non-functional"? What does it do? You should explain the problem fully, and then ask on the AOLserver list if necessary.
