CreateThread

(OP)
I heard I should use the C function - CreateThread() to create thread.

I have a graphics program that draws some animations. How can I add
another thread to do  other stuff like file processing -OR- internet
query?

Then where can I find tutorial on writing win32 threading code?

any books suggestion? any sample code?

following is my main program
=====================
#include "ofMain.h"
#include "testApp.h"

int main( ){

    ofSetupOpenGL(1024,768, OF_WINDOW);            //
<-------- setup the GL context
    
    // this kicks off the running of my app
    // can be OF_WINDOW or OF_FULLSCREEN
    // pass in width and height too:
    
    ofRunApp(new testApp());
    
}

RE: CreateThread

Did you check the MSDN?
That's the first place you should always look for info about Windows API functions.
