Ooh, that's so hard.  std::unique_lock supplies unlock() and lock() primitives, but it provides the very convenient guarantee that any lock will be released when it goes out of scope. > Apparently, you must be able to find a workaround by messing around with scopes and loops, but imagine how ugly it is going to look. Honestly, I don't know why you feel empowered to criticize tools you don't use and don't understand.  You are certainly not required to use C++ in your drivers, but you are entirely out of line to argue that C++ is inherently inferior.  It is provably not so. -- Tim Roberts, Providenza & Boekelheide, Inc.
