CK_EPOCH_BEGIN(3)	 BSD Library Functions Manual	     CK_EPOCH_BEGIN(3)

NAME
     ck_epoch_begin -- begin epoch-protected segment of	execution

LIBRARY
     Concurrency Kit (libck, -lck)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <ck_epoch.h>

     void
     ck_epoch_begin(ck_epoch_record_t *record, ck_epoch_section_t *section);

DESCRIPTION
     The ck_epoch_begin(3) function will mark the beginning of an epoch-pro-
     tected code section.  An epoch-protected code section is delimited	by a
     call to the ck_epoch_end(3) function. Though recursion is allowed for
     epoch-protected sections, recursive calls will be associated with the
     ck_epoch_begin(3) that is at the top of the call stack. If	a section is
     passed, then recursion on a record	will cause the epoch to	be refreshed
     on	entry of every protected section.

RETURN VALUES
     This function has no return value.

ERRORS
     The object	pointed	to by epoch must have been previously initiated	via
     ck_epoch_init(3).	The object pointed to by record	must have been previ-
     ously registered via ck_epoch_register(3).
