NAME

     ck_epoch_poll — non-blocking poll of epoch object for dispatch cycles

LIBRARY

     Concurrency Kit (libck, -lck)

SYNOPSIS

     #include <ck_epoch.h>

     bool
     ck_epoch_poll(ck_epoch_record_t *record);

DESCRIPTION

     The ck_epoch_poll(3) function will attempt to dispatch any functions associated with the
     object pointed to by epoch via ck_epoch_call(3) if deemed safe. This function is meant to be
     used in cases epoch reclamation cost must be amortized over time in a manner that does not
     affect caller progress.

RETURN VALUES

     This function will return true if at least one function was dispatched.  This function will
     return false if it has determined not all threads have observed the latest generation of
     epoch-protected objects. Neither value indicates an error.

ERRORS

     Behavior is undefined if the object pointed to by record has not have been previously
     registered via ck_epoch_register(3).
