Hi, I need to start an infinite loop when a toggle button receive the
"toggled" event and I must to stop this loop when the is re-toggled.
If I write:

while(TRUE) {

I can't listen event and I can't stop the loop.
In addition to using threads, what a solution can I use?

You should listen to a file descriptor with

gdk_input_add( fd, GDK_INPUT_READ, GTK_SIGNAL_FUNC(file_function),
&cmdinfo );

Note that a file dscriptor could be a socket!
