C atomic_fetch_sub( volatile A* obj, M arg );
C atomic_fetch_sub_explicit( volatile A* obj, M arg, memory_order order );
Atomically replaces the value pointed by
obj with the result of subtraction of
arg from the old value of
obj, and returns the value
obj held previously. The operation is read-modify-write operation. The first version orders memory accesses according to
memory_order_seq_cst, the second version orders memory accesses according to
This is a generic function defined for all atomic object types
A. The argument is pointer to a volatile atomic type to accept addresses of both non-volatile and volatile (e.g. memory-mapped I/O) atomic objects, and volatile semantic is preserved when applying this operation to volatile atomic objects.
M is either the non-atomic type corresponding to
A is atomic integer type, or
A is atomic pointer type.
It is unspecified whether the name of a generic function is a macro or an identifier declared with external linkage. If a macro definition is suppressed in order to access an actual function (e.g. parenthesized like
(atomic_fetch_sub)(...)), or a program defines an external identifier with the name of a generic function, the behavior is undefined.
For signed integer types, arithmetic is defined to use two’s complement representation. There are no undefined results. For pointer types, the result may be an undefined address, but the operations otherwise have no undefined behavior.
