LibHTTP API Reference – httplib_pthread_mutex_init()

httplib_pthread_mutex_init( mutex, attr );


Parameter Type Description
mutex pthread_mutex_t The key to the mutex to initialize
attr const pthread_mutexattr_t Optional attributes for the initialization

Return Value

Type Description
int Integer value with the result of the function


The platform independent function httplib_pthread_mutex_init() is used to initialize a mutex. The function returns 0 if this is successful, or an error code if it fails. On systems which support it, this function is implemented as a direct call to pthread_mutex_init(). On other systems own code is used to emulate the same functionality.

Please not that on systems which do not support pthread_mutex_init() natively that the attr parameter is ignored.
