Subject: [Boost-users] Named semaphores in Windows Hi
From: Kevin Williams (zs1kwa_at_[hidden])

I am looking at named semaphores in Windows. (Boost 1.57 with MSVC 2012)

In a simple test, I create a named semaphore, and immediately do a
"wait" after that, but the semaphore does not block.

Am I missing something? Without a "post" surely it should block?

Kind regards,
