Detailed Description

Class that acquires, renews, and releases a synchronization token local to the process.

This class is a more general-purpose synchronization mechanism than SunOS 5.x mutexes. For example, it implements "recursive mutex" semantics, where a thread that owns the token can reacquire it without deadlocking. In addition, threads that are blocked awaiting the token are serviced in strict FIFO order as other threads release the token (SunOS 5.x mutexes don't strictly enforce an acquisition order). Lastly, ACE_Local_Mutex performs deadlock detection on acquire calls. The interfaces for acquire, tryacquire, renew, release, etc. are defined in ACE_Token_Proxy. The semantics for ACE_Local_Mutex are that of a mutex.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

ACE_Local_Mutex::ACE_Local_Mutex ( const ACE_TCHAR token_name = 0,
int  ignore_deadlock = 0,
int  debug = 0 
) [inline]


token_nameUniquely id's the token.
ignore_deadlockWill allow deadlock to occur (useful for testing).
debugPrints a bunch of messages.
