    timed_mutex(const timed_mutex&) = delete;

    void unlock();

    using native_handle_type = implementation-defined;          // see [thread.req.native]

The class timed_­mutex provides a non-recursive mutex with exclusive ownership semantics.
If one thread owns a timed_­mutex object, attempts by another thread to acquire ownership of that object will fail (for try_­lock()) or block (for lock(), try_­lock_­for(), and try_­lock_­until()) until the owning thread has released ownership with a call to unlock() or the call to try_­lock_­for() or try_­lock_­until() times out (having failed to obtain ownership).
The class timed_­mutex shall satisfy all of the timed mutex requirements.
The behavior of a program is undefined if:
  • it destroys a timed_­mutex object owned by any thread,
  • a thread that owns a timed_­mutex object calls lock(), try_­lock(), try_­lock_­for(), or try_­lock_­until() on that object, or
  • a thread terminates while owning a timed_­mutex object.
