apr_status_t apr_thread_mutex_create ( apr_thread_mutex_t **  mutex,
unsigned int  flags,
apr_pool_t pool 
)

Create and initialize a mutex that can be used to synchronize threads.

Parameters
mutexthe memory address where the newly created mutex will be stored.
flagsOr'ed value of:
          APR_THREAD_MUTEX_DEFAULT   platform-optimal lock behavior.
          APR_THREAD_MUTEX_NESTED    enable nested (recursive) locks.
          APR_THREAD_MUTEX_UNNESTED  disable nested locks (non-recursive).
poolthe pool from which to allocate the mutex.
Warning
Be cautious in using APR_THREAD_MUTEX_DEFAULT. While this is the most optimal mutex based on a given platform's performance characteristics, it will behave as either a nested or an unnested lock.
apr_status_t apr_thread_mutex_destroy ( apr_thread_mutex_t mutex)

Destroy the mutex and free the memory associated with the lock.

Parameters
mutexthe mutex to destroy.
apr_status_t apr_thread_mutex_lock ( apr_thread_mutex_t mutex)

Acquire the lock for the given mutex. If the mutex is already locked, the current thread will be put to sleep until the lock becomes available.

Parameters
mutexthe mutex on which to acquire the lock.
apr_pool_t* apr_thread_mutex_pool_get ( const apr_thread_mutex_t thethread_mutex)

Get the pool used by this thread_mutex.

Returns
apr_pool_t the pool
apr_status_t apr_thread_mutex_trylock ( apr_thread_mutex_t mutex)

Attempt to acquire the lock for the given mutex. If the mutex has already been acquired, the call returns immediately with APR_EBUSY. Note: it is important that the APR_STATUS_IS_EBUSY(s) macro be used to determine if the return value was APR_EBUSY, for portability reasons.

Parameters
mutexthe mutex on which to attempt the lock acquiring.
apr_status_t apr_thread_mutex_unlock ( apr_thread_mutex_t mutex)

Release the lock for the given mutex.

Parameters
mutexthe mutex from which to release the lock.
