Defined in header <stdatomic.h>
void atomic_init( volatile A* obj, C desired );
(since C11)

Initializes the default-constructed atomic object object with the value desired. The function is not atomic: concurrent access from another thread, even through an atomic operation, is a data race.

This is a generic function defined for all atomic object types. A is the type of an atomic object, C is the non-atomic type corresponding to A.

[edit] Parameters

obj - pointer to an atomic object to initialize
desired - the value to initialize atomic object with
