NAME

ck_epoch_begin - begin epoch-protected segment of execution

LIBRARY

Concurrency Kit (libck, -lck)

SYNOPSIS

In ck_epoch.h Ft void Fn ck_epoch_begin ck_epoch_record_t *record ck_epoch_section_t *section

DESCRIPTION

The Fn ck_epoch_begin 3 function will mark the beginning of an epoch-protected code section. An epoch-protected code section is delimited by a call to the Fn ck_epoch_end 3 function. Though recursion is allowed for epoch-protected sections, recursive calls will be associated with the Fn ck_epoch_begin 3 that is at the top of the call stack. If a section is passed, then recursion on a record will cause the epoch to be refreshed on entry of every protected section.

RETURN VALUES

This function has no return value.

ERRORS

The object pointed to by Fa epoch must have been previously initiated via Fn ck_epoch_init 3 . The object pointed to by Fa record must have been previously registered via Fn ck_epoch_register 3 .
