Can C++11's Mutexes be used for Inter-Process Communication? In other words, can it be used for shared memory and signalling an event?
Currently, I'm using CreateEvent and SetEvent from WINAPI and I wanted a cross-platform way of doing so without doing #ifdef windows and ifdef linux, etc..
I use CreateEvent and have one process wait until the event signals. The other then signals when it's done reading and it repeats and so on..
