Function

GLibatomic_pointer_get

Declaration [src]

gpointer
g_atomic_pointer_get (
  void* atomic
)

While atomic has a volatile qualifier, this is a historical artifact and the pointer passed to it should not be volatile.

Available since:2.4

Parameters

atomic void*
 

A pointer to a #gpointer-sized value.

 The data is owned by the caller of the function.

Return value

Returns: gpointer
 

The value of the pointer.
