source: trunk/libs/libsemaphore/semaphore.h @ 620

Last change on this file since 620 was 619, checked in by alain, 3 years ago

1) Fix a bug in KSH : after the "load" command,

the [ksh] prompt is now printed after completion
of the loaded application.

2) Fix a bug in vmm_handle_cow() : the copy-on-write

use now a hal_remote_memcpy() to replicate the page content.

28//             POSIX unnamed semaphores related functions
29//
30// This synchonisation object allows several thread in a given process to share one
31// (or several) shared resource(s).
32// - The sem_wait() function allows a thread to take one resource and atomically
33//   decrement the semaphore count. If the count value is zero, the calling thread
34//   blocks and deschedules. It is unblocked by another thread when it becomes possible
35//   to make the decrement.
36// - the sem_post() functions allows a thread to release a resource and atomicalli
37//   increment the semaphore count.
