CBL_SEMAPHORE_RELEASE

Syntax:

call "CBL_SEMAPHORE_RELEASE" using by value semaphore-handle

Parameters:

  Using call prototype (see Key) Picture
semaphore-handle cblt-pointer usage pointer.

On Entry:

semaphore-handle Semaphore handle.

On Exit:

return-code A value of 0 indicates that the call was successful. Any other value indicates an error. See RETURN-CODE Values For Synchronization Routines

Comments:

If the count was zero before the increment, and some other threads are blocked in a CBL_SEMAPHORE_ACQUIRE call waiting for the count to become non-zero, then one of those threads is released, so it can decrement the count and return from CBL_SEMAPHORE_ACQUIRE.

Behavior is undefined if semaphore-handle is invalid.
