Detailed Description

This is a wrapper around Gnulib's glthread functionality.

It currently supports Posix threads (pthreads), GNU Pth threads, Solaris threads and Windows threads.

Function Documentation

int wget_thread_mutex_init (wget_thread_mutex * mutex)

Parameters

mutex The mutex to initialize

Returns

0 on success, non-zero on failure

Initializes the mutex.

After usage, a call to wget_thread_mutex_destroy() frees the allocated resources.

int wget_thread_mutex_destroy (wget_thread_mutex * mutex)

Parameters

mutex The mutex to destroy

Returns

0 on success, non-zero on failure

Free's the mutex and it's resources.

After calling this function, the mutex cannot be used any more.

void wget_thread_mutex_lock (wget_thread_mutex mutex)

Parameters

mutex The mutex to be locked

Creates a lock on the mutex.

To unlock the mutex, call wget_thread_mutex_unlock().

void wget_thread_mutex_unlock (wget_thread_mutex mutex)

Parameters

mutex The mutex to be unlocked

Unlocks the mutex.

int wget_thread_cond_init (wget_thread_cond * cond)

Parameters

cond The conditional to initialize

Returns

0 on success, non-zero on failure

Initializes the conditional cond.

After usage, a call to wget_thread_cond_destroy() frees the allocated resources.

int wget_thread_cond_destroy (wget_thread_cond * cond)

Parameters

cond The conditional to destroy

Returns

0 on success, non-zero on failure

Free's the conditional cond and it's resources.

After calling this function, cond cannot be used any more.

int wget_thread_cond_signal (wget_thread_cond cond)

Parameters

cond The conditional to signal a condition

Returns

0 on success, non-zero on failure

Wakes up one (random) thread that waits on the conditional.

int wget_thread_cond_wait (wget_thread_cond cond, wget_thread_mutex mutex, long long ms)

Parameters

cond The conditional to wait for
mutex The mutex needed for thread-safety
ms The wait timeout in milliseconds

Returns

0 on success, non-zero on failure

Waits for a condition with a max. timeout of ms milliseconds.

To wait forever use a timeout lower or equal then 0.

int wget_thread_start (wget_thread * thread, void *(*)(void *) start_routine, void * arg, WGET_GCC_UNUSED int flags)

Parameters

thread The thread variable to be initialized
start_routine The thread function to start
arg The argument given to start_routine
flags Currently unused

Returns

0 on success, non-zero on failure

Start start_routine as own thread with argument arg.

int wget_thread_cancel (WGET_GCC_UNUSED wget_thread thread)

Parameters

thread Thread to cancel

Returns

0 on success, non-zero on failure

Currently a no-op function, since it's not portable.

int wget_thread_kill (WGET_GCC_UNUSED wget_thread thread, WGET_GCC_UNUSED int sig)

Parameters

thread Thread to send the signal to
sig Signal to send

Returns

0 on success, non-zero on failure

Currently a no-op function, since it's not portable.

int wget_thread_join (wget_thread * thread)

Parameters

thread Thread to wait for

Returns

0 on success, non-zero on failure

Wait until the thread has been stopped.

This function just waits - to stop a thread you have take your own measurements.

wget_thread_id wget_thread_self (void)

Returns

The thread id of the caller.

bool wget_thread_support (void)

Returns

Whether libwget supports multi-threading on this platform or not.
