lockfree-queue- Michael and Scott lock-free queues.

Safe HaskellNone



Michael and Scott lock-free, single-ended queues.

This is a straightforward implementation of classic Michael & Scott Queues. Pseudocode for this algorithm can be found here:




newQ :: IO (LinkedQueue a) Source

Create a new queue.

nullQ :: LinkedQueue a -> IO Bool Source

Is the queue currently empty? Beware that this can be a highly transient state.

pushL :: forall a. LinkedQueue a -> a -> IO () Source

Push a new element onto the queue. Because the queue can grow, this always succeeds.

tryPopR :: forall a. LinkedQueue a -> IO (Maybe a) Source

Attempt to pop an element from the queue if one is available. tryPop will return semi-promptly (depending on contention), but will return Nothing if the queue is empty.
