Subject: [Boost-users] Boost intrusive list volatile hook
From: nat ersoz (natersoz_at_[hidden])

I intend to use the boost intrusive list to implement an observer pattern.

   - The list will cross interrupt boundaries; meaning one interrupt will
   produce the notifications and the other interrupt will observer the

   - The observer, in response to a notification, might detach itself from
   the list using the the hook's unlink() function.

   - I think that I will need the hook to be declared volatile in order to
   accommodate this.

I have a minimal code sample here:

My list hook member declaration:

    using list_hook_type = boost::intrusive::list_member_hook<

    list_hook_type hook;

My list declaration:

    using list_type =
            typename Observer<NotificationType>::list_hook_type,

If I a the volatile keyword to the list hood type, I cannot figure out how
to get the list_type declaration to fit into the list template list.

Is it possible?

Thank you.
