[][src]Struct lock_api::RwLock

pub struct RwLock<R: RawRwLock, T: ?Sized> { /* fields omitted */ }

A reader-writer lock

This type of lock allows a number of readers or at most one writer at any point in time. The write portion of this lock typically allows modification of the underlying data (exclusive access) and the read portion of this lock typically allows for read-only access (shared access).

The type parameter T represents the data that this lock protects. It is required that T satisfies Send to be shared across threads and Sync to allow concurrent access through readers. The RAII guards returned from the locking methods implement Deref (and DerefMut for the write methods) to allow access to the contained of the lock.

Methods

impl<R: RawRwLock, T> RwLock<R, T>
[src]

Creates a new instance of an RwLock<T> which is unlocked.

Consumes this RwLock, returning the underlying data.

impl<R: RawRwLock, T: ?Sized> RwLock<R, T>
[src]

Locks this RwLock with shared read access, blocking the current thread until it can be acquired.

The calling thread will be blocked until there are no more writers which hold the lock. There may be other readers currently inside the lock when this method returns.

Note that attempts to recursively acquire a read lock on a RwLock when the current thread already holds one may result in a deadlock.

Returns an RAII guard which will release this thread's shared access once it is dropped.

Attempts to acquire this RwLock with shared read access.

If the access could not be granted at this time, then None is returned. Otherwise, an RAII guard is returned which will release the shared access when it is dropped.

This function does not block.

Locks this RwLock with exclusive write access, blocking the current thread until it can be acquired.

This function will not return while other writers or other readers currently have access to the lock.

Returns an RAII guard which will drop the write access of this RwLock when dropped.

Attempts to lock this RwLock with exclusive write access.

If the lock could not be acquired at this time, then None is returned. Otherwise, an RAII guard is returned which will release the lock when it is dropped.

This function does not block.

Returns a mutable reference to the underlying data.

Since this call borrows the RwLock mutably, no actual locking needs to take place---the mutable borrow statically guarantees no locks exist.

Forcibly unlocks a read lock.

This is useful when combined with mem::forget to hold a lock without the need to maintain a RwLockReadGuard object alive, for example when dealing with FFI.

Safety

This method must only be called if the current thread logically owns a RwLockReadGuard but that guard has be discarded using mem::forget. Behavior is undefined if a rwlock is read-unlocked when not read-locked.

Forcibly unlocks a write lock.

This is useful when combined with mem::forget to hold a lock without the need to maintain a RwLockWriteGuard object alive, for example when dealing with FFI.

Safety

This method must only be called if the current thread logically owns a RwLockWriteGuard but that guard has be discarded using mem::forget. Behavior is undefined if a rwlock is write-unlocked when not write-locked.

Returns the underlying raw reader-writer lock object.

Note that you will most likely need to import the RawRwLock trait from lock_api to be able to call functions on the raw reader-writer lock.

Safety

This method is unsafe because it allows unlocking a mutex while still holding a reference to a lock guard.

impl<R: RawRwLockFair, T: ?Sized> RwLock<R, T>
[src]

Forcibly unlocks a read lock using a fair unlock procotol.

This is useful when combined with mem::forget to hold a lock without the need to maintain a RwLockReadGuard object alive, for example when dealing with FFI.

Safety

This method must only be called if the current thread logically owns a RwLockReadGuard but that guard has be discarded using mem::forget. Behavior is undefined if a rwlock is read-unlocked when not read-locked.

impl<R: RawRwLockTimed, T: ?Sized> RwLock<R, T>
[src]

Attempts to acquire this RwLock with shared read access until a timeout is reached.

If the access could not be granted before the timeout expires, then None is returned. Otherwise, an RAII guard is returned which will release the shared access when it is dropped.

Attempts to acquire this RwLock with exclusive write access until a timeout is reached.

If the access could not be granted before the timeout expires, then None is returned. Otherwise, an RAII guard is returned which will release the exclusive access when it is dropped.

impl<R: RawRwLockRecursive, T: ?Sized> RwLock<R, T>
[src]

Locks this RwLock with shared read access, blocking the current thread until it can be acquired.

The calling thread will be blocked until there are no more writers which hold the lock. There may be other readers currently inside the lock when this method returns.

Unlike read, this method is guaranteed to succeed without blocking if another read lock is held at the time of the call. This allows a thread to recursively lock a RwLock. However using this method can cause writers to starve since readers no longer block if a writer is waiting for the lock.

Returns an RAII guard which will release this thread's shared access once it is dropped.

Attempts to acquire this RwLock with shared read access.

If the access could not be granted at this time, then None is returned. Otherwise, an RAII guard is returned which will release the shared access when it is dropped.

This method is guaranteed to succeed if another read lock is held at the time of the call. See the documentation for read_recursive for details.

This function does not block.

impl<R: RawRwLockUpgrade, T: ?Sized> RwLock<R, T>
[src]

Locks this RwLock with upgradable read access, blocking the current thread until it can be acquired.

The calling thread will be blocked until there are no more writers or other upgradable reads which hold the lock. There may be other readers currently inside the lock when this method returns.

Returns an RAII guard which will release this thread's shared access once it is dropped.

Attempts to acquire this RwLock with upgradable read access.

If the access could not be granted at this time, then None is returned. Otherwise, an RAII guard is returned which will release the shared access when it is dropped.
