 29.Os
 30.Sh NAME
 31.Nm pthread_spin_lock , pthread_spin_trylock , pthread_spin_unlock
 32.Nd "lock or unlock a spin lock"
 33.Sh LIBRARY
 34.Lb libpthread
 35.Sh SYNOPSIS
 36.In pthread.h
 37.Ft int
 38.Fn pthread_spin_lock "pthread_spinlock_t *lock"
 39.Ft int
 40.Fn pthread_spin_trylock "pthread_spinlock_t *lock"
 41.Ft int
 42.Fn pthread_spin_unlock "pthread_spinlock_t *lock"
 43.Sh DESCRIPTION
 44The
 45.Fn pthread_spin_lock
 46function will acquire
 47.Fa lock
 48if it is not currently owned by another thread.
 49If the lock cannot be acquired immediately, it will
 50spin attempting to acquire the lock (it will not sleep) until
 51it becomes available.
 52.Pp
 53The
 54.Fn pthread_spin_trylock
 55function is the same as
 56.Fn pthread_spin_lock
 57except that if it cannot acquire
 58.Fa lock
 59immediately it will return with an error.
 60.Pp
 61The
 62.Fn pthread_spin_unlock
 63function will release
 64.Fa lock ,
 65which must have been previously locked by a call to
 66.Fn pthread_spin_lock
 67or
 68.Fn pthread_spin_trylock .
 69.Sh RETURN VALUES
 70If successful, all these functions will return zero.
 71Otherwise, an error number will be returned to indicate the error.
 72.Pp
 73None of these functions will return
 74.Er EINTR .
 75.Sh ERRORS
 76The
 77.Fn pthread_spin_lock ,
 78.Fn pthread_spin_trylock
 79and
 80.Fn pthread_spin_unlock
 81functions will fail if:
 82.Bl -tag -width Er
 83.It Bq Er EINVAL
 84The value specified by
 85.Fa lock
 86is invalid or is not initialized.
 87.El
 88.Pp
 89The
 90.Fn pthread_spin_lock
 91function may fail if:
 92.Bl -tag -width Er
 93.It Bq Er EDEADLK
 94The calling thread already owns the lock.
 95.El

108function may fail if:
109.Bl -tag -width Er
110.It Bq Er EPERM
111The calling thread does not own
112.Fa lock .

120.Fn pthread_spin_trylock
121and
122.Fn pthread_spin_unlock
