Multiple threads writing to a single file in C

dj4400 asked:

Open original thread
I have several threads in a C application and i want them to write to a single log file without blocking
their run.
I probably need to do a worker thread which gets signaled by each thread when it wants to write to the file and then write the data which it got from the signaling thread

The order of the writing is important

How can i achieve this?



What I have tried:

Using Events but i cant understand how to send the writing data
