Hello Victor,

This looks like a nice solution. As far as I understand Thread #1 would 
have to call thread::wait to enter event loop to be able to process what 
was sent from Thread #2, right?
I would like Thread #1 to do its work and receive commands from Thread 
#2. The problem is that when Thread #1 calls thread::wait it will wait 
until another thread sends a script, right? In case there is nothing to 
do (in the event loop) I would like Thread #1 to continue normal work.
How can I do that?
