how to terminate a thread in afriendly way?
I have an application that uses many threads to do various things.
Occasionally, one of the threads hangs when it is communicating with another
computer that stops responding. Is there a way that I can terminate the
hanging thread in such a way that it can clean up for itself before actually
terminating? I've looked at exceptions, but I can't see how one thread (that
is monitoring things)can throw an exception for another thread (that is

I have a problem with CAsynsocket. I can connect to a remote socket. When I
want to close the connection, I just delete the socket object (which closes
the connection) and have no problems.
But if I've started to connect to a remote socket that doesn't exist (or
doesn't accept), and I delete the local socket object while waiting for the
connection, I sometimes get an assert in CAsyncSocket::DoCallBack(). See
below. Actually, it's not in the middle of an Accept call because I test
with an address and port that I know doesn't exist.

I have a windows 2000 domain in mixed mode. Also Exchange 2003 SP1.
