A Rust library which provides a generic
Atomic<T> type for all
T: NoUninit types, unlike the standard library which only provides a few fixed atomic types (
NoUninit bound is from the bytemuck crate, and indicates that a type has no internal padding bytes. You will need to derive or implement this trait for all types used with
This library will use native atomic instructions if possible, and will otherwise fall back to a lock-based mechanism. You can use the
Atomic::<T>::is_lock_free() function to check whether native atomic operations are supported for a given type. Note that a type must have a power-of-2 size and alignment in order to be used by native atomic instructions.
This crate uses
#![no_std] and only depends on libcore.
