That sounds promising. I will have to check threads and threads::shared as I in fact need (or wanted) to:
As it seemed to be not too easy to get the data from the parallel commands back to the parent, so that I just have one writer to the sqlite DB, I skipped this part for now and concentrated on the timeout part.
It seems with threads::shared, I can achieve what I wanted in the first place. Thanks BrowserUk!
