Member Function Documentation

static csRef<csSemaphore> csSemaphore::Create ( uint32  value = 0  )  [static]

Create a semaphore with some initial value.

virtual char const* csSemaphore::GetLastError (  )  const [pure virtual]

Return the last error description, else 0 if there was none.

virtual bool csSemaphore::LockTry (  )  [pure virtual]

Lock the semaphore if not already locked by some other entity.

Does not suspend the thread waiting for the lock. If lock succeeded, returns true. If lock failed, immediately returns false. Each successful call to LockTry() must be balanced with a call to Release().

virtual bool csSemaphore::LockWait (  )  [pure virtual]

Lock the semaphore.

Suspends execution of the thread until the mutex can be locked. Each LockWait() must be balanced by a call to Release(). Returns true if locking succeeded. Returns false if locking failed for some catastrophic reason; check GetLastError().

virtual bool csSemaphore::Release (  )  [pure virtual]

Unlock the semaphore.

Each successful call to LockWait() or LockTry() must be balanced by a call to Release(). Returns true if unlocking succeeded. Returns false if unlocking failed for some catastrophic reason; check GetLastError().

virtual uint32 csSemaphore::Value (  )  [pure virtual]

Retrieve the present value of the semaphore.
