globus_thread_once (3) - Linux Man Pages
One-time execution -
The globus_thread_once_t provides a way for applications and libraries to execute some code exactly one time, independent of the number of threads which attempt to execute it. To use this, statically initialize a globus_thread_once_t control with the value GLOBUS_THREAD_ONCE_INIT, and pass a pointer to a function to execute once, along with the control, to globus_thread_once().
int globus_thread_once (globus_thread_once_t *once, void(*)(void)init_routine)
Execute a function one time. The globus_thread_once() function will execute the function pointed to by its init_routine parameter one time for each unique globus_thread_once_t object passed to it, independent of the number of threads calling it. The once value must be a static value initialized to GLOBUS_THREAD_ONCE_INIT.
once A pointer to the value used to govern whether the function passed via the init_routine parameter has executed.
init_routine Function to execute one time. It is called with no parameters.
- On success, globus_thread_once() guarantees that the function pointed to by init_routine has run, and that subsequent calls to globus_thread_once() with the same value of once will not execute that function, and returns GLOBUS_SUCCESS. If an error occurs, globus_thread_once() returns an implementation-specific non-zero error value.
