The thread finishes when:
1.The run method finishes.
2.In case of the loop- you may -
>>> import threading
>>> class abc(threading.Thread):
Also, you may
>>> del abcd
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<pyshell#29>", line 1, in -toplevel-
NameError: name 'abcd' is not defined
I am not very sure about the CPU usage of a stopped
thread.Perhaps someone from the group can enlighten
Hope this makes it clear.
