Function core::intrinsics::atomic_cxchg[][src]

pub unsafe extern "rust-intrinsic" fn atomic_cxchg<T: Copy>(
    dst: *mut T,
    old: T,
    src: T
) -> (T, bool)
🔬 This is a nightly-only experimental API. (core_intrinsics)

intrinsics are unlikely to ever be stabilized, instead they should be used through stabilized interfaces in the rest of the standard library

Expand description

Stores a value if the current value is the same as the old value.

The stabilized version of this intrinsic is available on the atomic types via the compare_exchange method by passing Ordering::SeqCst as both the success and failure parameters. For example, AtomicBool::compare_exchange.
