Atomic operations and memory ordering

Nice article on the developer portal that discusses memory ordering and atomic operations. It's worth noting that Solaris 10 has a number of atomic operations implemented in libc.

Comments:

That was a good article on the subject. Got a question and i hope you don't mind. So here goes, Is there some way to take a look at the intermediate code generated by the Sun Studio12 C compiler? I am really curious about it...

Thanks for the review, Raymond!

Unfortunately, I don't think that there's a supported way of viewing the IR.

I expected as much, can't seem to find much information on the IR from Google. Btw, love your book 'Solaris Application Programming'; are you planning a sequel?

Thanks!

I'm currently working on other materials - you'll have seen some of my presentation schedule. Not planning a sequel just yet! :)
