LibHTTP API Reference – httplib_pthread_cond_timedwait()

httplib_pthread_cond_timedwait( cv, mutex, abstime );


Parameter Type Description
cv pthread_cond_t The condition to wait for
mutex pthread_mutex_t * The mutex to release when the condition is met
abstime const struct timespec * structure containing the desired timeout time

Return Value

Type Description
int Integer value with a success or error code of the function call


The platform independent function httplib_pthread_cond_timedwait() is used to wait for a specific condition to be met. After the condition is met, the specified mutex is unlocked. If the function succeeds, the value 0 is returned, otherwise the return value is an error code. A timeout value is specified after which the function will return, even if the condition is not met. In the later case an error code indicating the timeout is returned. On systems which support it, the functionality is implemented as a direct call to pthread_cond_timedwait(). Otherwise an OS dependent alternative function is called.
