<h2>Description</h2>
<div class="description">
<p>A <a href="Poco.NamedMutex.html" title="class Poco::NamedMutex">NamedMutex</a> (mutual exclusion) is a global synchronization  mechanism used to control access to a shared resource in a concurrent (multi process) scenario. Using the <a href="Poco.NamedMutex.html#8599" title="Poco::NamedMutex::ScopedLock">ScopedLock</a> class is the preferred way to automatically lock and unlock a mutex. </p>
<p>Unlike a <a href="Poco.Mutex.html" title="class Poco::Mutex">Mutex</a> or a <a href="Poco.FastMutex.html" title="class Poco::FastMutex">FastMutex</a>, which itself is the unit of synchronization, a <a href="Poco.NamedMutex.html" title="class Poco::NamedMutex">NamedMutex</a> refers to a named operating system resource being the unit of synchronization. In other words, there can be multiple instances of <a href="Poco.NamedMutex.html" title="class Poco::NamedMutex">NamedMutex</a> referring to the same actual synchronization object. </p>
<p></p>
<p>There should not be more than one instance of <a href="Poco.NamedMutex.html" title="class Poco::NamedMutex">NamedMutex</a> for a given name in a process. Otherwise, the instances may interfere with each other. </p>
