ck_pr ā€” concurrency primitives interface


Concurrency Kit (libck, -lck)


#include <ck_pr.h>


ck_pr.h provides an interface to volatile atomic instructions, memory barriers and busy-wait facilities as provided by the underlying processor. The presence of an atomic operation is detected by the presence of a corresponding CK_F_PR macro. For example, the availability of ck_pr_add_16(3) would be determined by the presence of CK_F_PR_ADD_16.
