Check out the doxygen documentation page for ACE_Task
provides the ability to encapsulate the behaviour inside a class (for
added benefit the task can run in the main thread, or it can run in a
separated thread just as easily), and provides a message queue
(appropriately locked for separate threads) for communication. I use it
quite a bit, and it is quite flexible...
