SYNOPSIS


.In ck_pr.h void ck_pr_fence_atomic void void ck_pr_fence_strict_atomic void

DESCRIPTION

The ck_pr_fence_atomic function enfores the ordering of any atomic read-modify-write operations relative to the invocation of the function. This function always serve as an implicit compiler barrier. On architectures implementing CK_MD_TSO, this operation only serves as a compiler barrier and no fences are emitted. On architectures implementing CK_MD_PSO and CK_MD_RMO, a store fence is emitted. To force the unconditional emission of a fence, use ck_pr_fence_strict_atomic.

EXAMPLE

#include <ck_pr.h>

static int a = 0; static int b = 0; static int c = 0;

void function(void) {

        ck_pr_fas_int(&a, 1);

        /*          * Guarantee that the update to a is completed          * with respect to the updates of b and c.          */         ck_pr_fence_atomic();         ck_pr_fas_int(&b, 2);         ck_pr_fas_int(&c, 2);

        return; }

RETURN VALUES

This function has no return value.
