MDN wants to talk to developers like you:


Decrement the entry count associated with a cached monitor.


#include <prcmon.h> 

PRStatus PR_CExitMonitor(void *address);


The function has the following parameters:

The address of the protected object--the same address previously passed to PR_CEnterMonitor.


The function returns one of the following values:

  • If successful, PR_SUCCESS.
  • If unsuccessful, PR_FAILURE. This may indicate that the address parameter is invalid or that the calling thread is not in the monitor.


Using the value specified in the address parameter to find a monitor in the monitor cache, PR_CExitMonitor decrements the entry count associated with the monitor. If the decremented entry count is zero, the monitor is exited.
