A proposal to rename shared_mutex to shared_timed_mutex

by Gor Nishanov, Herb Sutter

Excerpt:

We propose to rename shared_mutex to shared_timed_mutex:

(a) for consistency with the other mutexes (fixing naming inconsistency);

(b) to leave room for a shared_mutex which can be more efficient on some platforms than shared_timed_ mutex.
