#include <pthread.h> int pthread_mutex_unlock( pthread_mutex_t* mutex );
- A pointer to the pthread_mutex_t object that you want to unlock.
Use the -l c option to qcc to link against this library. This library is usually included automatically.
The pthread_mutex_unlock() function unlocks the mutex mutex. The mutex should be owned by the calling thread. If there are threads blocked on the mutex then the highest priority waiting thread is unblocked and becomes the next owner of the mutex.
If mutex has been locked more than once, it must be unlocked the same number of times before the next thread is given ownership of the mutex. This only works for recursive mutexes.
- Invalid mutex mutex.
- Current thread doesn't own mutex.
