NetBSD 6.1.5 - man page for atomic_dec_64_nv (netbsd section 3)

ATOMIC_DEC(3)			   BSD Library Functions Manual 		    ATOMIC_DEC(3)

NAME
     atomic_dec, atomic_dec_32, atomic_dec_uint, atomic_dec_ulong, atomic_dec_ptr, atomic_dec_64,
     atomic_dec_32_nv, atomic_dec_uint_nv, atomic_dec_ulong_nv, atomic_dec_ptr_nv,
     atomic_dec_64_nv -- atomic decrement operations

SYNOPSIS
     #include <sys/atomic.h>

     void
     atomic_dec_32(volatile uint32_t *ptr);

     void
     atomic_dec_uint(volatile unsigned int *ptr);

     void
     atomic_dec_ulong(volatile unsigned long *ptr);

     void
     atomic_dec_ptr(volatile void *ptr);

     void
     atomic_dec_64(volatile uint64_t *ptr);

     uint32_t
     atomic_dec_32_nv(volatile uint32_t *ptr);

     unsigned int
     atomic_dec_uint_nv(volatile unsigned int *ptr);

     unsigned long
     atomic_dec_ulong_nv(volatile unsigned long *ptr);

     void *
     atomic_dec_ptr_nv(volatile void *ptr);

     uint64_t
     atomic_dec_64_nv(volatile uint64_t *ptr);

DESCRIPTION
     The atomic_dec family of functions decrement (by one) the variable referenced by ptr in an
     atomic fashion.

     The *_nv() variants of these functions return the new value.

     The 64-bit variants of these functions are available only on platforms that can support
     atomic 64-bit memory access.  Applications can check for the availability of 64-bit atomic
     memory operations by testing if the pre-processor macro __HAVE_ATOMIC64_OPS is defined.

SEE ALSO
     atomic_ops(3)

HISTORY
     The atomic_dec functions first appeared in NetBSD 5.0.
