Eventdriven Programming with Libisc
When programs have to do more than one thing, there are two basic ways of doing it: event driven or multi-threaded. In recent years multi-threading has gotten all the publicity and this tutorial tries to level the ground somewhat. A basic introduction will be given to the two methods and their relative merits will be examined.
A real world application of eventdriven programming will be examined and various fine and not so fine sights will be pointed out along the way.
