POSIX named semaphore support.

data OpenSemFlags Source
semCreate :: BoolIf true, create the semaphore if it does not yet exist.
semExclusive :: BoolIf true, throw an exception if the semaphore already exists.
data Semaphore Source
semOpen :: String -> OpenSemFlags -> FileMode -> Int -> IO SemaphoreSource
Open a named semaphore with the given name, flags, mode, and initial value.
semUnlink :: String -> IO ()Source
Delete the semaphore with the given name.
semWait :: Semaphore -> IO ()Source
Lock the semaphore, blocking until it becomes available. Since this is done through a system call, this will block the *entire runtime*, not just the current thread. If this is not the behaviour you want, use semThreadWait instead.
semTryWait :: Semaphore -> IO BoolSource
Attempt to lock the semaphore without blocking. Immediately return False if it is not available.
semThreadWait :: Semaphore -> IO ()Source
Poll the semaphore until it is available, then lock it. Unlike semWait, this will block only the current thread rather than the entire process.
semPost :: Semaphore -> IO ()Source
Unlock the semaphore.
semGetValue :: Semaphore -> IO IntSource
Return the semaphore's current value.
