1.0.0[][src]Struct std::sync::PoisonError

pub struct PoisonError<T> { /* fields omitted */ }

A type of error which can be returned whenever a lock is acquired.

Both Mutexes and RwLocks are poisoned whenever a thread fails while the lock is held. The precise semantics for when a lock is poisoned is documented on each lock, but once a lock is poisoned then all future acquisitions will return this error.

Examples

use std::sync::{Arc, Mutex};
use std::thread;

let mutex = Arc::new(Mutex::new(1));

// poison the mutex
let c_mutex = mutex.clone();
let _ = thread::spawn(move || {
    let mut data = c_mutex.lock().unwrap();
    *data = 2;
    panic!();
}).join();

match mutex.lock() {
    Ok(_) => unreachable!(),
    Err(p_err) => {
        let data = p_err.get_ref();
        println!("recovered: {}", data);
    }
};Run

Methods

impl<T> PoisonError<T>
[src]

Creates a PoisonError.

This is generally created by methods like Mutex::lock or RwLock::read.

Consumes this error indicating that a lock is poisoned, returning the underlying guard to allow access regardless.

Examples

use std::collections::HashSet;
use std::sync::{Arc, Mutex};
use std::thread;

let mutex = Arc::new(Mutex::new(HashSet::new()));

// poison the mutex
let c_mutex = mutex.clone();
let _ = thread::spawn(move || {
    let mut data = c_mutex.lock().unwrap();
    data.insert(10);
    panic!();
}).join();

let p_err = mutex.lock().unwrap_err();
let data = p_err.into_inner();
println!("recovered {} items", data.len());Run
