ATOMIC_SWAP(3C) Standard C Library Functions ATOMIC_SWAP(3C)

NAME


atomic_swap, atomic_swap_8, atomic_swap_uchar, atomic_swap_16,
atomic_swap_ushort, atomic_swap_32, atomic_swap_uint, atomic_swap_ulong,
atomic_swap_64, atomic_swap_ptr - atomic swap operations

SYNOPSIS


#include <atomic.h>

uint8_t atomic_swap_8(volatile uint8_t *target, uint8_t newval);


uchar_t atomic_swap_uchar(volatile uchar_t *target, uchar_t newval);


uint16_t atomic_swap_16(volatile uint16_t *target, uint16_t newval);


ushort_t atomic_swap_ushort(volatile ushort_t *target, ushort_t newval);


uint32_t atomic_swap_32(volatile uint32_t *target, uint32_t newval);


uint_t atomic_swap_uint(volatile uint_t *target, uint_t newval);


ulong_t atomic_swap_ulong(volatile ulong_t *target, ulong_t newval);


uint64_t atomic_swap_64(volatile uint64_t *target, uint64_t newval);


void *atomic_swap_ptr(volatile void *target, void *newval);


DESCRIPTION


These functions enable a swap operation to occur atomically. The value
stored in target is replaced with newval. The old value is returned by
the function.

RETURN VALUES


These functions return the old of *target.

ERRORS


No errors are defined.
