Detailed Description

Class for simple thread invocation.

This class is useful for creating threads that do not return any value. For more complex cases (e.g., return value), create your own thread by inheriting from class AbstractThread.

Example of usage:

void myfunction (void* arg);
int main ()
int b;
SimpleThread t (myfunction, (void*) b);
