This package provides semi-portable access to hardware provided
atomic memory operations. These might allow you to write code:
- That does more interesting things in signal handlers.
- Makes more effective use of multiprocessors by allowing you to write
clever lock-free code. Note that such code is very difficult to get
right, and will unavoidably be less portable than lock-based code. It
is also not always faster than lock-based code. But it may occasionally
be a large performance win.
- To experiment with new and much better thread programming paradigms, etc.
As the latest code for this library is only available via CVS, this package
provides a snapshot.
