Declaration [src]

g_pointer_bit_trylock (
  void* address,
  gint lock_bit

Description [src]

This is equivalent to g_bit_trylock(), but working on pointers (or other pointer-sized values).

For portability reasons, you may only lock on the bottom 32 bits of the pointer.

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

Available since:2.30


address void*

A pointer to a #gpointer-sized value.

 The data is owned by the caller of the function.
lock_bit gint

A bit value between 0 and 31

Return value

Returns: gboolean

TRUE if the lock was acquired.
