Create a new mutex.


SDL_mutex* SDL_CreateMutex(void);

Return Value

Returns the initialized and unlocked mutex or NULL on failure; call SDL_GetError() for more information.


All newly-created mutexes begin in the unlocked state.

Calls to SDL_LockMutex() will not return while the mutex is locked by another thread. See SDL_TryLockMutex() to attempt to lock without blocking.

SDL mutexes are reentrant.


This function is available since SDL 2.0.0.
