Thread does not update global variable Can't Post

Hello all,

I am trying to write a client/server chat unix program.
I have 2 threads 1 for user input and 1 for socket com.

The problem is the thread that grabs user input has a
while (1) {} not to exit ...

The problem is this sub does not update global variables. So I need a routine that never exits but updates the current cursor position ... you see I don't want when a user being at the middle of his message ... and a new one arrives to have his cursor initialized by redrawing the terminal with the new buffer.

Thanks a lot Cool
