# To subscribers of the xforms list from "Paolo Prandini" <firstname.lastname@example.org> :
I implemented a big program using XForms whose purpose is to control some
industrial machinery; the same Linux PC running X is also controlling the
(motors, lights, etc).
I need to show some real time values and alarms in the same window where
are located the pushbuttons activating the various functions .
I didn't even think of it, but in fact I designed everything as if
XForms were threadsafe.
BUT IT IS NOT! Now I have some mysterious lockups and I traced them to
this kind of problem.
The possible solutions are:
a) rewrite everything with another lib that is threadsafe
b) fix XForms
But to fix XForms I need the source code! What about letting me do this
kind of modification? Or maybe there is a threadsafe version in the works?
Thanks for any suggestion.
