CK_EPOCH_REGISTER(3)     BSD Library Functions Manual     CK_EPOCH_REGISTER(3)

NAME
     ck_epoch_register -- register a thread for epoch reclamation

LIBRARY
     Concurrency Kit (libck, -lck)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <ck_epoch.h>

     void
     ck_epoch_register(ck_epoch_t *epoch, ck_epoch_record_t *record);

DESCRIPTION
     The ck_epoch_register(3) function associates a record object specified by
     the record pointer with the epoch object pointed to by epoch.  Any thread
     or processor that will require safe memory reclamation guarantees must
     register a unique record object. After registration, the object pointed
     to by the record argument will have lifetime managed by the underlying
     epoch sub-system.  The record object must not be destroyed after it is
     associated with a ck_epoch_register(3) call.

RETURN VALUES
     This function has no return value.
