SDL_UnlockMutex

Unlock the mutex.

Syntax

int SDL_UnlockMutex(SDL_mutex * mutex);

Function Parameters

mutex

the mutex to unlock.

Return Value

Returns 0, or -1 on error.

Remarks

It is legal for the owning thread to lock an already-locked mutex. It must unlock it the same number of times before it is actually made available for other threads in the system (this is known as a "recursive mutex").

It is an error to unlock a mutex that has not been locked by the current thread, and doing so results in undefined behavior.

It is also an error to unlock a mutex that isn't locked at all.

Version

This function is available since SDL 3.0.0.
