In this video, I demonstrate a technique for communicating between threads in a Delphi application, without using typical locking mechanisms such as critical sections. Best Viewed in Full Screen (Recorded 1080p).

  • Hi, The problem is that its still not threadsafe. If one thread is pushing while the other is pulling then there is a race condition between updating and comparing the index counters. At least you should use InterlockedIncrement and when you reach a border and need to reset the index, you would need to use a waitloop and InterlockedCompareAndExchange which in itself introduce a finegrained lock. best regards Kim/C4D
