On UNIX, the OS checks to see whether the process is being ptraced by somebody. If no, the SIGTRAP signal is delivered to • Read More »



c++ why std::shared_ptr need atomic_store, atomic_load or why we need atomic shared_ptr No ratings yet.

shared_ptr is some sort of confusing especially why we need atomic_store, atomic_load on that. It is NOT thread safe. In fact,  the primary intended use of std::shared_ptr is letting multiple threads control the lifetime of the same object, but not thread-safe. A good summary is: A shared_ptr behaves like a built-in type regarding thread-safety, Concurrent access to distinct • Read More »
