Blockader: And Alternate AsyncLock Variant with None of the Usual Limitations

24 May 2020CPOL
An alternate AsyncLock version with full lock-alike semantics, minimal CPU consumption, and support for synchronous, asynchronous, and mixed reentrant scenarios.
This article goes over the syntax and usage for Blockader. The basic idea behind Blockader is that it must be an almost friction-less replacement for your standard lock statements. And a bit about how Blockader works. Firstly, Blockader uses the not well-known ConditionalWeakTable API to attach a metadata package to any synchronization root it is given. Secondly, Blockader uses the AsyncLock API to maintain the whom part mentioned above, such a way that it represents the ambient under which a lock is captured.
