Detailed Description

Recursive mutex class.

This is a mutual exclusion object for synchronizing access to shared memory areas for several threads. The mutex is recursive (i.e. a thread may lock the mutex several times, as long as it unlocks the mutex the same number of times).

Member Function Documentation

void lock ( ) [inline]

Lock the mutex.

The method will block the calling thread until a lock on the mutex can be obtained. The mutex remains locked until unlock() is called.

See also:
lock_guard
bool try_lock ( ) [inline]

Try to lock the mutex.

The method will try to lock the mutex. If it fails, the function will return immediately (non-blocking).

Returns:
true if the lock was acquired, or false if the lock could not be acquired.
void unlock ( ) [inline]

Unlock the mutex.

If any threads are waiting for the lock on this mutex, one of them will be unblocked.
