std::shared_timed_mutex (3) - Linux Manuals
Defined in header <shared_mutex>
class shared_timed_mutex; (since C++14)
The shared_timed_mutex class is a synchronization primitive that can be used to protect shared data from being simultaneously accessed by multiple threads. In contrast to other mutex types which facilitate exclusive access, a shared_timed_mutex has two levels of access:
* shared - several threads can share ownership of the same mutex.
* exclusive - only one thread can own the mutex.
Shared mutexes are usually used in situations when multiple readers can access the same resource at the same time without causing data races, but only one writer can do so.
In a manner similar to timed_mutex, shared_timed_mutex provides the ability to attempt to claim ownership of a shared_timed_mutex with a timeout via the try_lock_for(), try_lock_until(), try_lock_shared_for(), try_lock_shared_until() methods.
The shared_timed_mutex class satisfies all requirements of SharedTimedMutex and StandardLayoutType.
