Atomic<T> for Rust
A Rust library which provides a generic
Atomic<T> type for all
T: Copy types, unlike the standard library which only provides a few fixed atomic types (
This library will use native atomic instructions if possible, and will otherwise fall back to a lock-based mechanism. You can use the
Atomic::<T>::is_lock_free() function to check whether native atomic operations are supported for a given type. Note that a type must have a power-of-2 size and alignment in order to be used by native atomic instructions.
This crate uses
#![no_std] and only depends on libcore.
