33.6.4 Mutex requirements [thread.mutex.requirements] Shared mutex types [thread.sharedmutex.requirements] Class shared_mutex [thread.sharedmutex.class]

namespace std { class shared_mutex { public: shared_mutex(); ~shared_mutex(); shared_mutex(const shared_mutex&) = delete; shared_mutex& operator=(const shared_mutex&) = delete; // exclusive ownership void lock(); // blocking bool try_lock(); void unlock(); // shared ownership void lock_shared(); // blocking bool try_lock_shared(); void unlock_shared(); using native_handle_type = implementation-defined; // see [thread.req.native] native_handle_type native_handle(); // see [thread.req.native] }; }
The class shared_mutex provides a non-recursive mutex with shared ownership semantics.
The class shared_mutex meets all of the shared mutex requirements ([thread.sharedmutex.requirements]).
It is a standard-layout class ([class.prop]).
The behavior of a program is undefined if:
  • it destroys a shared_mutex object owned by any thread,
  • a thread attempts to recursively gain any ownership of a shared_mutex, or
  • a thread terminates while possessing any ownership of a shared_mutex.
shared_mutex may be a synonym for shared_timed_mutex.
