CK_PR_FENCE_ATOMIC(3) Library Functions Manual CK_PR_FENCE_ATOMIC(3)

ck_pr_fence_atomicenforce partial ordering of atomic read-modify-write operations

Concurrency Kit (libck, -lck)

#include <ck_pr.h>



The () function enforces 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 ().

#include <ck_pr.h>

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


	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_fas_int(&b, 2);
	ck_pr_fas_int(&c, 2);


This function has no return value.
