[Freeswitch-dev] Originating from an event.

here is the recipe:


1) Your own private struct that contains a pool pointer and any other data
you want to use in the thread.
2) a pool pointer

// define your struct

typedef struct {
  switch_memory_pool_t *pool;
  int num;
} my_helper_t;

// declare your variables

switch_memory_pool_t *pool;
my_helper_t *mh;

// create pool

// use the pool to create the struct

mh = (my_helper_t *) switch_core_alloc(pool, sizeof(*mh));

// populate the struct

mh->pool = pool;
mh->num = 42;

// now pass mh as the private data of the thread and get it back in your
// just destroy the pool at the end of your function

static void *SWITCH_THREAD_FUNC my_thread(switch_thread_t *thread, void
  my_helper_t *mh = (my_helper_t *) obj;

  // Do your thang

  mh = NULL;
