Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Thread Safe Data Types

I'm looking for a list of known thread safe data types. No specific end goal, more for my information.

The only ones I know of are 'volatile bool' and TQueues are thread safe, and while I could just slap anything into a TQueue to get the work done, it feels like a 'sloppy' answer and am just curious what else is available to us.

"volatile bool" is thread safe onlu in VisualStudio which is not standard C++ and will have compatability issues.

FThreadSafeBool is the way to go.
