Hi Neophytos!
Good to see you on the forums again.

Ok, I got it - it's a drop-in replacement for ns_returnfile. Very useful to know about.

Since this thread turns out out be a kind of tutorial, here some completion of the information: ad_returnfile_background is part of xotcl-core and has the following requirements
  1. xotcl-core (sure, if it is defined there)
  2. one needs either a "new" aolserver, or an "old" with the required patches (see discussion above and Boost...), and
  3. one has to have libthread installed (tcl thread library, as described in the request-monitor wiki page)
If you have e.g. only (1), you will have as well a function named ad_returnfile_background, but this will just call ns_returnfile.

Hope this helps -gustaf neumann
