C - Gtk + timer + sockets + cairo
My ideia is to draw a circle with a radius "radius" and i'm thinking about using a gtk window for it. I need to redraw it from time to time or everytime that comes a new value from a socket message. My problem is i don't know where to put the socket code, to be constantly reading the socket messages.

I thought puting the code after the gtk function but the program hang on, and only jump to the socket piece of code after closing the gtk window.

Does anyone knows where to paste the code? i had another ideia and it would be to create two threads and put gtk window in one thread and the socket receiver code in another, what you think?

Thanks in advance, and sorry my bad english.

GIOChannels is a facility the fully supports the GTK environment. You can research more example using "GIOChannel
as the keyword.

Hope that gets you started.
