We need a pseudocode implementation of this concept. -- (talk) 01:29, 22 March 2008 (UTC)


I suggest merging read/write lock pattern into readers-writer lock. They are so closely related that I think a good article on one of them will duplicate most of the information in a good article on the other one. -- (talk) 14:54, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

+1. It looks like the text from read/write lock pattern has already been merged in, though some copy editing work looks appropriate. Jordan Brown (talk) 00:36, 2 March 2010 (UTC)

Title of the article[edit]

This title is unfamiliar to me, though perhaps that just marks me as some kind of dinosaur. I know this as either of the more descriptive "multiple readers / single-writer lock" or "shared read lock". If it were just up to me, I'd rename the page. But I'm curious to know how others feel.

Also, for some reason the dash/hyphen/whatever chosen for the title results in an address with %E2%80%93 in it. I figure perhaps a copy-and-paste error since other articles (e.g. S-CRY-ed) have a "regular" dash in them. Sorry I'm being pretty vague. RobI (talk) 19:08, 17 February 2012 (UTC)

Fair RWlock with 1 mutex for readers[edit]

"Faster Fair Solution for the Reader-Writer Problem" It's fair. It (mostly) requires only 1 mutex for readers. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:47, 8 October 2014 (UTC)
