in thread How to wait for events, and not lose any, while processing them ?

This is great, textbook example of handling events with additional thread, thanks.

The problem however, is that the 'processEvents' CAUSES new events to be generated, thus, without echo-filter

while ($keepOnWatching) { if (ThisIsNotMyOwnEcho()) {# echo-filter processEvents(); } };

this solution changes 1-cpu burning into multiple-cores burning program.

    If you only describe half the problem, (less--how do you distinguish an "echo" from the "real thing"?), you only get half a solution. That said, the architecture stays the same.

    You either filter events before you queue them, or after you dequeue them, whichever is more convenient and timely.


    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.

    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
