Equivalent to fork()?

Equivalent to fork()?

Is there any command in visual basic which is similar to fork command in c?

It’s not exactly the same, but the Shell statement will allow you to start another program. There is also a “WinExec” API call which does a similar function. Fork kicks off additional processes…I don’t know of an equivalent for VB/Windows at this time. There is no “multi-threading” model for VB, at least as of version 4. Time will tell if later versions will have this feature.
