                         Pietrek.

                         Developers often make the mistake of thinking that
                         there's a one-to-one correspondence between a task
                         and a window. Matt Pietrek explains the relation
                         relationship between them, then presents TASKWIND,
                         his version of the Windows Task Manager.

S14229    EVENTS.EXE     The EVENTS.EXE file contains the source code for
                         the article named "Coordinate Win32 Threads Using
                         Manual-Reset and Auto-Reset Events," by Jeffrey
                         Richter.

                         Event objects in Windows NT behave quite differ-
                         ently than mutexes and semaphores. They're most
                         commonly used when one thread performing work
                         needs to signal another thread to do more work.
                         Jeff Richter shows you how to use these events
                         appropriately.
