Starting Lua scripts in separate threads

Recommended Posts

Hi Pete,

I have a couple of Lua scripts that use blocking socket calls. To prevent them waiting for eachother I would like to start them in a seperate thread. This works if I assign a different key to them and start them by pressing all the assigned keys but I would like to do this automatically from ipcready.lua or some other means.

I could rewrite my scripts to use non-blocking socket calls but that would make my scripts (and the other side) much more complicated so if you can suggest a way to start scripts in their own thread I would be very grateful.

Thanks!

Lua plug-ins started by another plug-in, like ipcReady do run in separate threads, just like starting them by assignment.

All plug-ins always have their own thread.

Thanks Pete. I always used "require" or "ipc.macro" to start other plug-ins and I overlooked the ipc.runlua command. I guess that is what you refer to. Indeed this solves my problem.
