ConvertThreadToFiber (kernel32)
Converts the current thread into a fiber.

C# Signature:

static extern IntPtr ConvertThreadToFiber(IntPtr lpParameter);

User-Defined Types:



Only fibers can execute other fibers. If a thread needs to execute a fiber, it must call ConvertThreadToFiber or ConvertThreadToFiberEx to create an area in which to save fiber state information. The thread is now the current fiber. The state information for this fiber includes the fiber data specified by lpParameter.

To compile an application that uses this function, define WIN32WINNT as 0x0400 or later.
