Subject: [Boost-users] Boost ASIO cancelling jobs from another thread
From: Mark Christiaens (christim_at_[hidden])

We are developing a client-server application using Boost ASIO for
asynchronous socket communication. We were wondering whether it is safe to
cancel a read on a socket by closing the socket from another thread
(without any additional synchronization)? What would be the preferred way
to cancel operations from different threads?

Thanks in advance,

Mark Christiaens
