lqr_carver_cancel(3) cancel ongoing operations on a LqrCarver object


#include <lqr.h>

LqrRetVal lqr_carver_cancel(LqrCarver* carver);


The function lqr_carver_cancel can be used to cancel an ongoing operation which is currently being performed on the the LqrCarver object pointed to by carver. It must be used asynchronouly, from within an independent thread.

If an operation is in fact cancelled by this function, the function which was performing the operation will return the value LQR_USRCANCEL, and so will do any other operation successively called on the same LqrCarver object whose return type is LqrRetVal; otherwise it will have no effect.

Whenever a function returns LQR_USRCANCEL, it means that the LqrCarver object is in an inconsistent state, and, since there is currently no way to recover from this situation, any further operation on that object must be avoided, and it must be destroyed.

This function will fail if invoked over attached LqrCarver objects.


The return value follows the Liquid Rescale library signalling system. However, it can be called multiple times, so it will never return LQR_USRCANCEL itself.
