Overview

ThreadGroup provides a means of keeping track of a number of threads as a

group.

A given Thread object can only belong to one ThreadGroup at a time; adding
a thread to a new group will remove it from any previous group.

Newly created threads belong to the same group as the thread from which they
were created.

#add(thread) ⇒ Object

Adds the given thread to this group, removing it from any other group to which it may have previously been a member.

puts "Initial group is #{ThreadGroup::Default.list}"
tg = ThreadGroup.new
t1 = Thread.new { sleep }
t2 = Thread.new { sleep }
puts "t1 is #{t1}"
puts "t2 is #{t2}"
tg.add(t1)
puts "Initial group now #{ThreadGroup::Default.list}"
puts "tg group now #{tg.list}"

This will produce:

Initial group is #<Thread:0x401bdf4c>
t1 is #<Thread:0x401b3c90>
t2 is #<Thread:0x401b3c18>
Initial group now #<Thread:0x401b3c18>#<Thread:0x401bdf4c>
tg group now #<Thread:0x401b3c90>

#encloseObject

Prevents threads from being added to or removed from the receiving ThreadGroup.

New threads can still be started in an enclosed ThreadGroup.

ThreadGroup::Default.enclose        #=> #<ThreadGroup:0x4029d914>
thr = Thread.new { Thread.stop }    #=> #<Thread:0x402a7210 sleep>
tg = ThreadGroup.new                #=> #<ThreadGroup:0x402752d4>
tg.add thr#=> ThreadError: can't move from the enclosed thread group
