NAME

sem_post - unlock a semaphore  

SYNOPSIS

#include <semaphore.h>

int sem_post(sem_t *sem);

Link with -pthread.  

DESCRIPTION

sem_post() increments (unlocks) the semaphore pointed to by sem. If the semaphore's value consequently becomes greater than zero, then another process or thread blocked in a sem_wait(3) call will be woken up and proceed to lock the semaphore.  

RETURN VALUE

sem_post() returns 0 on success; on error, the value of the semaphore is left unchanged, -1 is returned, and errno is set to indicate the error.  

ERRORS

EINVAL
sem is not a valid semaphore.
EOVERFLOW
The maximum allowable value for a semaphore would be exceeded.
