Hi everybody,

I have heard that .XDL files are simple DOS executables files. However, it seems that Seal is able to run many applications at the same time, does Seal really has multithreading support ?????

No, they aren't the same as EXE files or anything. They are a custom format, based on the DLX format.

No, it doesn't. Do a search for "multitasking" for more information.

For multithreading you would need to use hardware. You would need a processor supporting multithreading, that would for eg. be the P4 3.06HT.
