31 Atomic operations library [atomics]

31.8 Class template atomic [atomics.types.generic]

31.8.2 Specializations for integers [atomics.types.int]

There are specializations of the atomic class template for the integral types char, signed char, unsigned char, short, unsigned short, int, unsigned int, long, unsigned long, long long, unsigned long long, char8_­t, char16_­t, char32_­t, wchar_­t, and any other types needed by the typedefs in the header <cstdint> ([cstdint.syn]).
For each such type integral, the specialization atomic<integral> provides additional atomic operations appropriate to integral types.
Note
:
The specialization atomic<bool> uses the primary template ([atomics.types.generic]).

The atomic integral specializations are standard-layout structs.
They each have a trivial destructor.
Descriptions are provided below only for members that differ from the primary template.
The following operations perform arithmetic computations.
The key, operator, and computation correspondence is:

T fetch_key(T operand, memory_order order = memory_order::seq_cst) volatile noexcept; T fetch_key(T operand, memory_order order = memory_order::seq_cst) noexcept;
Effects: Atomically replaces the value pointed to by this with the result of the computation applied to the value pointed to by this and the given operand.
Memory is affected according to the value of order.
These operations are atomic read-modify-write operations ([intro.multithread]).
Returns: Atomically, the value pointed to by this immediately before the effects.
Remarks: For signed integer types, the result is as if the object value and parameters were converted to their corresponding unsigned types, the computation performed on those types, and the result converted back to the signed type.
Note
:
There are no undefined results arising from the computation.
