The InterlockedExchange routine sets an integer variable to a given value as an atomic operation.
- Target [in, out]
A pointer to a variable to be set to the supplied Value as an atomic operation.
- Value [in]
Specifies the value to which the variable will be set.
InterlockedExchange returns the value of the variable at Target when the call occurred.
InterlockedExchange should be used instead of ExInterlockedExchangeUlong, because it is both faster and more efficient.
InterlockedExchange is implemented inline by the compiler when appropriate and possible. It does not require a spin lock and can therefore be safely used on pageable data.
A call to InterlockedExchange routine is atomic only with respect to other InterlockedXxx calls.
Interlocked operations cannot be used on non-cached memory.
