I've been spamming the boost list with a problem apparently linked to a
g++ version. Then someone over there posted this question,
locked by another thread, can you show me additional example about how
to let a thread immediately exit when it found a mutex object is being
used? i mean that one of thread in our application is actually the
GUI main thread, it will access the shared data in it's OnIdel event
handler, so i hope it will be never blocked, when resources are not
Can anyone tell me if a GUI will run WITHOUT someone able to block
the "main thread" waiting for a non-existent lock? I thought this
was a requirement. ROFLMAO.
