Sample text

Well, that's not quite true, as the astute among you will have noticed: if one of the member functions returns a pointer or reference to the protected data, then it doesn't matter that the member functions all lock the mutex in a nice orderly fashion, as you've just blown a big hole in the protection. Any code that has access to that pointer or reference can now access (and potentially modify) the protected data without locking the mutex. Protecting data with a mutex therefore requires careful interface design, to ensure that the mutex is locked before any access to the protected data, and that there are no back doors.

This is termed Software Transactional Memory, and is an active research area at the time of writing. This will not be covered in this book, as there is no direct support for STM in C++. The most basic mechanism for protecting shared data provided by the C++ Standard is the mutex, so we'll look at that first. 2 Protecting Shared Data with Mutexes So, you've got a shared data structure such as the linked list from the previous section, and you want to protect it from race conditions and the potential broken invariants that can ensue.

In this case, all the information required by each thread was passed in when the thread was started, including the location in which to store the result of its calculation. This is not always the case: sometimes it is necessary to be able to identify the threads in some way for part of the processing. 8, but if the function that needs the identifier is several levels deep in the call stack, and could be called from any thread, it is inconvenient to have to do it that way. When we were designing the C++ thread library we foresaw this need, and so each thread has a unique identifier.
