Crate volatile[][src]

Provides the wrapper type Volatile, which wraps a reference to any copy-able type and allows for volatile memory access to wrapped value. Volatile memory accesses are never optimized away by the compiler, and are useful in many low-level systems programming and concurrent contexts.

The wrapper types do not enforce any atomicity guarantees; to also get atomicity, consider looking at the Atomic wrapper types found in libcore or libstd.



Allows creating read-only and write-only Volatile values.



Wraps a reference to make accesses to the referenced value volatile.
