I'm reading some of the C++ working standard, and I arrive at the chapter on Atomic Operations Library.
Are these types/operations which will never be split over various threads, i.e., thread-safe types and operations?
If that's true, why are there types like "atomic_bool" ? A normal primitive 'bool' is already type safe?
Further, could someone explain me some of the applications? Massive parallel for example?
Thanks for your explications!!!
