Member Function Documentation

void lock ( )

Locks the mutex.

Definition at line 121 of file mutex.cpp.

bool trylock ( )

Tries to lock the mutex.

True if the attempt was successful, false otherwise.
This function also returns true if mutex support is not available, ie. if gloox is compiled without pthreads on non-Windows platforms. Make sure threads/mutexes are available if your code relies on trylock().

Definition at line 126 of file mutex.cpp.

void unlock ( )

Releases the mutex.
