Reads data from a stream, without locking other threads.
size_t _fread_nolock( void *buffer, size_t size, size_t count, FILE *stream );
Storage location for data.
Item size in bytes.
Maximum number of items to be read.
Pointer to the
This function is a non-locking version of
fread. It is identical to
fread except that it is not protected from interference by other threads. It might be faster because it does not incur the overhead of locking out other threads. Use this function only in thread-safe contexts such as single-threaded applications or where the calling scope already handles thread isolation.
