Ok. Point taken.
What I hear you saying is that once I use .terminate anything
following that is indeterminate. It might work on my system
and nowhere else. Even though it was working for me*before,
it was likely causing trouble elsewhere.
So, I need another approach.
The problem I am facing is that I want to run arbitrary
(user-supplied) code in the other thread and need to be
able to stop it at any time.
This is for a python turtle-graphics application:
I found another possible approach here:
It uses ctypes to raise an exception in the other thread.
For the simple test case, at least, it works (for me).
Is this any safer or more reliable than .terminate ?
Is it portable? ie, if I build this in to my actual application
and it works for me, is it likely to work for everyone?
Thanks for any insight.
