Atomic Boolean package for Go, optimized for performance yet simple to use.

Designed for cleaner code.

Usage

import "github.com/tevino/abool"

cond := abool.New()     // default to false

cond.Set()              // Sets to true
cond.IsSet()            // Returns true
cond.UnSet()            // Sets to false
cond.IsNotSet()         // Returns true
cond.SetTo(any)         // Sets to whatever you want
cond.SetToIf(new, old)  // Sets to `new` only if the Boolean matches the `old`, returns whether succeeded
cond.Toggle()           // Inverts the boolean then returns the value before inverting


// embedding
type Foo struct {
    cond *abool.AtomicBool  // always use pointer to avoid copy
}
