_InlineInterlockedAdd function (winnt.h)

Performs an atomic addition operation on the specified LONG values. The operation is performed with acquire memory ordering semantics.

Syntax

LONG _InlineInterlockedAdd(
  [in, out] LONG volatile *Addend,
  [in]      LONG          Value
);

Parameters

[in, out] Addend

A pointer to the first operand. This value will be replaced with the result of the operation.

[in] Value

The second operand.

Return value

The function returns the result of the operation.

Remarks

The interlocked functions provide a simple mechanism for synchronizing access to a variable that is shared by multiple threads. This function is atomic with respect to calls to other interlocked functions.

This function is implemented using a compiler intrinsic where possible. For more information, see the WinBase.h header file and _InterlockedAdd_acq.

Note  This function is supported on Windows RT-based systems.
