13 Threads and Animation

13.1 Introduction to Threads

13.2 Animation

13.3 Images

13.4 Concurrent Programming

In this chapter we introduce threads, which allow two or more pieces of a program to execute in their own threads of control, appearing to work simultaneously. Animation provides a good illustration of thread use. Running an animation in one thread allows the program to continue other processing. We can animate graphics that we draw on the screen or images that we can download from remote sites. Concurrent programming involves threads working together to accomplish a task.
