pure nothrow @nogc HeadUnshared!T atomicOp(string op, T, V1)(ref shared T val, V1 mod) if (__traits(compiles, mixin("*cast(T*)&val" ~ op ~ "mod")));
Performs the binary operation 'op' on val using 'mod' as the modifier.
Parameters:
T val The target variable.
V1 mod The modifier to apply.
Returns:
The result of the operation.
pure nothrow @nogc bool cas(T, V1, V2)(shared(T)* here, const V1 ifThis, V2 writeThis) if (!is(T == class) && !is(T U : U*) && __traits(compiles, () { *here = writeThis; } ));
pure nothrow @nogc bool cas(T, V1, V2)(shared(T)* here, const shared(V1) ifThis, shared(V2) writeThis) if (is(T == class) && __traits(compiles, () { *here = writeThis; } ));
pure nothrow @nogc bool cas(T, V1, V2)(shared(T)* here, const shared(V1)* ifThis, shared(V2)* writeThis) if (is(T U : U*) && __traits(compiles, () { *here = writeThis; } ));
Stores 'writeThis' to the memory referenced by 'here' if the value referenced by 'here' is equal to 'ifThis'. This operation is both lock-free and atomic.
Parameters:
shared(T)* here The address of the destination variable.
V2 writeThis The value to store.
V1 ifThis The comparison value.
Returns:
true if the store occurred, false if not.
pure nothrow @nogc HeadUnshared!T atomicLoad(MemoryOrder ms = MemoryOrder.seq, T)(ref const shared T val);
Loads 'val' from memory and returns it. The memory barrier specified by 'ms' is applied to the operation, which is fully sequenced by default.
Parameters:
T val The target variable.
Returns:
The value of 'val'.
pure nothrow @nogc void atomicStore(MemoryOrder ms = MemoryOrder.seq, T, V1)(ref shared T val, V1 newval) if (__traits(compiles, () { val = newval; } ));
Writes 'newval' into 'val'. The memory barrier specified by 'ms' is applied to the operation, which is fully sequenced by default.
Parameters:
T val The target variable.
V1 newval The value to store.
enum MemoryOrder: int;
Specifies the memory ordering semantics of an atomic operation.
raw
Not sequenced.
acq
Hoist-load + hoist-store barrier.
rel
Sink-load + sink-store barrier.
seq
Fully sequenced (acquire + release).
nothrow @nogc void atomicFence();
Inserts a full load/store memory fence (on platforms that need it). This ensures that all loads and stores before a call to this function are executed before any loads and stores after the call.
