Go code (golang) set of packages that provide synchonization primitives beyond those provided by the golang sync package.
Check out the API Documentation http://godoc.org/bitbucket.org/jbester/sync
The events package provides a single synchronization primitive the Event. An event is used to notify the occurrence of a condition to routines.
Multiple routines can wait on a condition. All routines unblock once the condition occurs. A routine that waits on a condition that has already occurred will not block.
The event primitive is similar to the event in the pSOS or ARINC 653 API sets.
The startgroup package provides a mechanism for a collection of goroutines to wait for a release event. When released, all blocked routines simultaneously.
A typical use is when multiple routines need to know when a resource is available but do not need exclusive access to the resource.
The semaphores package provides a go implementation of binary and counting semaphores. It is designed to use atomic operations to maintain the semaphore count and a channel to signal waiting threads.
To install, use go get:
go get bitbucket.org/jbester/sync/...
