SYNOPSIS

#include <cc++/config.h>

#include <ctime>
#include <pthread.h>
#include <time.h>
#include <signal.h>
#include <unistd.h>

Classes


class ost::Mutex
The Mutex class is used to protect a section of code so that at any given time only a single thread can perform the protected operation. class ost::MutexLock
The MutexLock class is used to protect a section of code so that at any given time only a single thread can perform the protected operation. class ost::ThreadLock
The ThreadLock class impliments a thread rwlock for optimal reader performance on systems which have rwlock support, and reverts to a simple mutex for those that do not. class ost::ReadLock
The ReadLock class is used to protect a section of code through a ThreadLock for 'read' access to the member function. class ost::WriteLock
The WriteLock class is used to protect a section of code through a ThreadLock for 'write' access to the member function. class ost::MutexCounter
The Mutex Counter is a counter variable which can safely be incremented or decremented by multiple threads. class ost::AtomicCounter
The AtomicCounter class offers thread-safe manipulation of an integer counter. class ost::Conditional
A conditional variable synchcronization object for one to one and one to many signal and control events between processes. class ost::Semaphore
A semaphore is generally used as a synchronization object between multiple threads or to protect a limited and finite resource such as a memory or thread pool. class ost::SemaphoreLock
The SemaphoreLock class is used to protect a section of code through a semaphore so that only x instances of the member function may execute concurrently. class ost::Event
The Event class implements a feature originally found in the WIN32 API; event notification. class ost::Thread
Every thread of execution in an application is created by instantiating an object of a class derived from the Thread class. class ost::Cancellation
A class to automatically set the thread cancellation mode of a member function. class ost::PosixThread
class ost::ThreadKey
This class allows the creation of a thread context unique 'pointer' that can be set and retrieved and can be used to create thread specific data areas for implementing 'thread safe' library routines. class ost::TimerPort
Timer ports are used to provide synchronized timing events when managed under a 'service thread' such as SocketService. class ost::SysTime
This class is used to access non-reentrant date and time functions in the standard C library.
