Detailed Description

template<typename BaseMutex>
class CS::Threading::MutexImpl< BaseMutex >

General mutex class.

A mutex is a mutual exclusion object, it stops two threads from having it locked at the same time. A thread can get the lock by calling Lock or TryLock, and release it by calling Unlock.

Users are advised to use the ScopedLock helper class.
