Atomically replaces the current value with the result of arithmetic addition of the value and `arg`

. That is, it performs atomic post-increment. The operation is a read-modify-write operation. Memory is affected according to the value of `order`

.

For signed `Integral`

types, arithmetic is defined to use two’s complement representation. There are no undefined results.

For `T*`

types, the result may be an undefined address, but the operation otherwise has no undefined behavior. The program is ill-formed if `T`

is not an object type.

For floating-point types, the floating-point environment in effect may be different from the calling thread's floating-point environment. The operation need not conform to the corresponding The volatile-qualified versions are deprecated if | (since C++20) |

#include <iostream> #include <thread> #include <atomic> #include <array> std::atomic<long long> data{10}; std::array<long long, 5> return_values{}; void do_work(int thread_num) { long long val = data.fetch_add(1, std::memory_order_relaxed); return_values[thread_num] = val; } int main() { { std::jthread th0{do_work, 0}; std::jthread th1{do_work, 1}; std::jthread th2{do_work, 2}; std::jthread th3{do_work, 3}; std::jthread th4{do_work, 4}; } std::cout << "Result : " << data << '\n'; for (long long val : return_values) { std::cout << "Seen return value : " << val << std::endl; } }

Possible output:

Result : 15 Seen return value : 11 Seen return value : 10 Seen return value : 14 Seen return value : 12 Seen return value : 13
