Function core.sync.mutex.Mutex.tryLock

If the lock is held by another caller, the method returns. Otherwise, the lock is acquired if it is not already held, and then the internal counter is incremented by one.

bool tryLock() @trusted;

bool tryLock() @trusted shared;


true if the lock was acquired and false if not.


Mutex.tryLock does not throw, but a class derived from Mutex can throw. Use tryLock_nothrow in nothrow @nogc code.
