queue

This is the class of queue objects. Queues are conceptually (but not necessarily implementationally) like first-in first-out lists, with objects being enqueued by being appended onto the end and dequeued by being popped off the front. Queues are more convenient than lists in a multiprocessing environment because enqueuing and dequeuing operations are atomic (they will complete without a process switch) and because dequeuing has a built-in wait capability. Queues have no intrinsic size limit.

Queues are created with make-instance. The following form will return a new queue:

(make-instance 'mp:queue)

See enqueue, dequeue, queue-empty-p, and Queues (both models) in multiprocessing.htm.
