[deprecated] Data structures and sample applications using Mintomic
C++ CMake


*** Update 2015-02-06: Mintomic is no longer being maintained. Native C atomics are available in Turf instead: https://github.com/preshing/turf/tree/master/turf/c ***

This repository contains some data structures and sample applications which demonstrate low-level lock-free concepts using Mintomic. There are two sample applications:

  • ArrayOfItems
  • HashTable1

CMake is required.

Build Instructions

The following steps work in Windows, Linux and MacOS.

First, clone this repository as you normally would.

$ git clone https://github.com/mintomic/samples

The repository contains Mintomic as a submodule. If you cloned using the above command line, you'll need to manually update the submodule. Otherwise, the mintomic/ subdirectory will be empty, and things won't build.

$ cd samples
$ git submodule update --init

Next, suppose you want to build the ArrayOfItems sample. Descend into the projects/arrayofitems/ subdirectory and run CMake as you normally would. It's customary to run it from a subdirectory named build/.

$ cd projects/arrayofitems
$ mkdir build
$ cd build
$ cmake ..

If the above CMake command line does not generate the project type you want, try again using CMake's -G option, or use the CMake GUI.

To generate an Xcode project for iOS devices, use the following CMake command line:

$ cmake -DCMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE=../../../mintomic/cmake/iOS.cmake -G "Xcode" ..

After running CMake, you will be left with some project/solution files for your IDE, or some Unix Makefiles. You should know what to do at this point. Remember to select ArrayOfItems as the Startup Project (Visual Studio) or the Active Scheme (Xcode).

It's highly recommended to build and run the Release configuration. Select this in your IDE the usual way, or if you're working with Unix Makefiles, specify the build type on the CMake command line:

$ cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -G "Unix Makefiles" ..
