(Solved) Possible Race Condition in Example Code?
It's possible that the call to cv.notify_one() in worker_thread() happens before cv.wait() in main(). In this case the main thread waits forever. The fix would be to remove lk.unlock() in worker_thread(). Is that correct? Ens (talk) 06:53, 1 October 2014 (PDT)
- no, main will not wait forever (or at all) in that case: note that it's calling the two-argument std::condition_variable::wait. --Cubbi (talk) 07:00, 1 October 2014 (PDT)
- Got it, thanks. I misread how the predicated wait works. But isn't the unsynchronized read/write on the variable 'processed' undefined behaviour? Shouldn't it be an atomic bool? Ens (talk) 12:06, 1 October 2014 (PDT)
 Display quirk in definition of native_handle_type
The definition reads implementation-dened for me, although copy-pasting gives the correct implementation-defined, and in the source, there it’s also spelled out correctly … I’m using Fx 12.0 here, are there any people with similar problems? Fast2, 188.8.131.52 16:21, 5 June 2012 (PDT)
 Need to simplify the example, and replace bool and while on the enum and switch.
