Function

GLibatomic_pointer_set

Declaration [src]

void
g_atomic_pointer_set (
  void* atomic,
  gpointer newval
)

Description [src]

Sets the value of atomic to newval.

This call acts as a full compiler and hardware memory barrier (after the set).

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.
newval gpointer
 

A new value to store.
