Re: Problem with pthread_cond_timedwait()

Hi Dmitrii,

Thank you very much!
The problem is solved after locking the mutex before calling the function.
I was trying to implement a sleep() function using pthread_cond_timedwait(),
so the thread calling this function will never be signaled. I thought the
using mutex is necessary only if pthread_cond_timedwait() is used together
with pthread_cond_signal/broadcast(). In fact, it works in Linux without
locking the mutex, so I thought it must be a problem of something else.

Best regards,
