Neither do I, but wasn't that what Silvio asked? [by saying: `The problem now is how to stop the "Accept" but without errors`]

I admit, killing an entire thread is a bit overkill for just getting back control from accept, but I also recall that he wanted to close the application [or am I seeing ghosts?]. But if you don't want to use pthread_cancel(), use non-blocking sockets -- In my experience though, it isn't worth the code if you just want to kill the application gracefully.

Anyway, I'm sure there are other ways to get this done (signals?), but these are two methods I know about. Each has it's bonuses and pitfalls.
