std::unique_lock<Mutex>::try_lock_for: std::unique_lock<Mutex>::try_lock_for


std::unique_lock<Mutex>::try_lock_for - std::unique_lock<Mutex>::try_lock_for


template< class Rep, class Period > (since C++11)
bool try_lock_for( const std::chrono::duration<Rep,Period>& timeout_duration );

Tries to lock the associated mutex. Blocks until specified timeout_duration has elapsed or the lock is acquired, whichever comes first. On successful lock acquisition returns true, otherwise returns false. Effectively calls mutex()->try_lock_for(timeout_duration).
This function may block for longer than timeout_duration due to scheduling or resource contention delays.
The standard recommends that a steady clock is used to measure the duration. If an implementation uses a system clock instead, the wait time may also be sensitive to clock adjustments.
std::system_error is thrown if there is no associated mutex or if the mutex is already locked by this std::unique_lock.


timeout_duration - maximum duration to block for

Return value

true if the ownership of the mutex has been acquired successfully, false otherwise.


* Any exceptions thrown by mutex()->try_lock_for(timeout_duration)

* If there is no associated mutex, std::system_error with an error code of std::errc::operation_not_permitted

* If the mutex is already locked, std::system_error with an error code of std::errc::resource_deadlock_would_occur
