Detailed Description

Lean replacement for std::(recursive_)mutex.

Unfortunately we can't use std::mutex and std::condition_variable as MinGW doesn't implement C++11 threading yet. Even in those variants that at least have mutexes and condition variables, they don't make use of Vista+'s CONDITION_VARIABLE, so it's too slow for our needs.

Once all platforms have C++11 threading implemented in the fastest way possible, this class will be removed.

The documentation for this class was generated from the following file:
