When to use Critical Sections in Threads?
Hi, all :)
When is it necessary to use critical sections in a multithread application? I have read that it should be used when “manipulating shared resources”, but what do those that really mean? Does it mean when manipulating: global variables, allocated memory chunks or files? And does “manipulating” mean: reading (probably not), writing or reallocating? Could anyone please demonstrate some code examples for typical situations when critical sections should be used?
Thanks in Advance :)
