With the acquire-releae semantic, we break the sequential consistency. In the acquire-release semantic the synchronization takes place between atomic operations on the same atomic and not between threads.
With atomic data types you can tailor your program to your needs and therefore optimize it. But now we are in the domain of the multithreading experts.
The easiest way to solve the undefined behaviour in the post Ongoing Optimization: Unsynchronized access is, to use a lock.
I've described my challenge in the last post. Let' start with our process of ongoing optimization. To be sure, I verify my reasoning with CppMem. I once made a big mistake in my presentation at Meeting C++ 2014.
Something completely different. I'm looking for English proofreaders for my new book.
Now it's time to put the theory into practice. The job is quite easy. A small program should undergo an ongoing optimization.
CppMem is an interactive tool for exploring the behaviour of small code snippets of the C++ memory model. It should, no it has to be in the tool box of each programmer, who deals seriously with the memory model.
