NAME

SDL_SemPost- Unlock a semaphore.  

SYNOPSIS

#include "SDL.h" #include "SDL_thread.h"

int SDL_SemPost(SDL_sem *sem);  

DESCRIPTION

SDL_SemPost unlocks the semaphore pointed to by sem and atomically increments the semaphores value. Threads that were blocking on the semaphore may be scheduled after this call succeeds.

SDL_SemPost should be called after a semaphore is locked by a successful call to SDL_SemWait, SDL_SemTryWait or SDL_SemWaitTimeout.  

RETURN VALUE

Returns 0 if successful or -1 if there was an error (leaving the semaphore unchanged).  

EXAMPLES

SDL_SemPost(my_sem);

 

SEE ALSO

SDL_CreateSemaphore, SDL_DestroySemaphore, SDL_SemWait, SDL_SemTryWait, SDL_SemWaitTimeout, SDL_SemValue
