NAME

       SDL_CreateSemaphore - Creates a new semaphore and assigns an initial value to it.

SYNOPSIS

       #include "SDL.h" #include "SDL_thread.h"

       SDL_sem *SDL_CreateSemaphore(Uint32 initial_value);

DESCRIPTION

       SDL_CreateSemaphore()   creates  a  new  semaphore  and  initializes  it  with  the  value
       initial_value. Each locking operation on the semaphore by SDL_SemWait,  SDL_SemTryWait  or
       SDL_SemWaitTimeout  will  atomically  decrement the semaphore value. The locking operation
       will be blocked if the semaphore value is not positive (greater than  zero).  Each  unlock
       operation by SDL_SemPost will atomically increment the semaphore value.

RETURN VALUE

       Returns a pointer to an initialized semaphore or NULL if there was an error.

EXAMPLES

       SDL_sem *my_sem;

       my_sem = SDL_CreateSemaphore(INITIAL_SEM_VALUE);

       if (my_sem == NULL) {
               return CREATE_SEM_FAILED;
       }
