Documentation

Ractor::TVar

Software transactional memory implementation for Ractor and Thread on Ruby 3.0.

require 'ractor/tvar'

tv = Ractor::TVar.new(0)

N = 10_000

r = Ractor.new tv do |tv|
  N.times do
    Ractor.atomically do
      tv.value += 1
    end
   end
end

N.times do
  Ractor.atomically do
    tv.value += 1
  end
end

r.take # wait for the ractor

p tv.value #=> 20000 (= N * 2)

This script shows that there is no race between ractors.
