The thread's process will be spawned 5 times, but the handle for the thread ('th1' in this case), is overwritten each time the loop is executed, so you end up with th1 being the 5th thread.

You might want to consider crating an array to store the threads, and shift the index, since you'll be counting anyway. ;)


int numThreads = 5;
<thread type> threads[numThreads];
int i;
for (i = 0;i < numThreads;i++){
threads = <create spawning function>;
}
