◆ vlc_atomic_notify_all()

void vlc_atomic_notify_all ( void *  addr)

Wakes up all thread on an address.

Wakes up all threads sleeping on the specified address (if any). Any thread sleeping within a call to vlc_atomic_wait() or vlc_atomic_timedwait() with the specified address as first call parameter will be woken up.

◆ vlc_atomic_notify_one()

void vlc_atomic_notify_one ( void *  addr)

Wakes up one thread on an address.

Wakes up (at least) one of the thread sleeping on the specified address. The address must be equal to the first parameter given by at least one thread sleeping within the vlc_atomic_wait() or vlc_atomic_timedwait() functions. If no threads are found, this function does nothing.

int vlc_atomic_timedwait ( void *  addr,
unsigned  val,
vlc_tick_t  deadline 

Waits on an address with a time-out.

This function operates as vlc_atomic_wait() but provides an additional time-out. If the deadline is reached, the thread resumes and the function returns.

◆ vlc_atomic_wait()

void vlc_atomic_wait ( void *  addr,
unsigned  val 

Waits on an address.

Puts the calling thread to sleep if a specific unsigned 32-bits value is stored at a specified address. The thread will sleep until it is woken up by a call to vlc_atomic_notify_one() or vlc_atomic_notify_all() in another thread, or spuriously.

If the value does not match, do nothing and return immediately.
