Mutex


Mutex. In programming, a unary semaphore, serving to synchronize simultaneously executed threads. Mutex can be in two states: locked and unlocked. By associating mutex with hardware or software application resource you can provide correct access to the resources from several tasks - if a task tries to get access to the locked resource it will be set into waiting state but will get control immediately after the resource is unlocked.
