Destroy a mutex
#include <pthread.h> int pthread_mutex_destroy( pthread_mutex_t* mutex );
- A pointer to the pthread_mutex_t object that you want to destroy.
Use the -l c option to qcc to link against this library. This library is usually included automatically.
The pthread_mutex_destroy() function destroys the unlocked mutex mutex.
You can only destroy a locked mutex provided you're the owner of that mutex.
|Once you've destroyed a mutex, don't reuse it without reinitializing it by calling pthread_mutex_init().|
- The mutex is locked by another thread.
- Invalid mutex mutex.
