32.5.5.2 Class template lock_­guard [thread.lock.guard]

namespace std { template<class Mutex> class lock_guard { public: using mutex_type = Mutex; explicit lock_guard(mutex_type& m); lock_guard(mutex_type& m, adopt_lock_t); ~lock_guard(); lock_guard(const lock_guard&) = delete; lock_guard& operator=(const lock_guard&) = delete; private: mutex_type& pm; // exposition only }; }
An object of type lock_­guard controls the ownership of a lockable object within a scope.
A lock_­guard object maintains ownership of a lockable object throughout the lock_­guard object's lifetime.
The behavior of a program is undefined if the lockable object referenced by pm does not exist for the entire lifetime of the lock_­guard object.
The supplied Mutex type shall meet the Cpp17BasicLockable requirements ([thread.req.lockable.basic]).
explicit lock_guard(mutex_type& m);
Effects: Initializes pm with m.
Calls m.lock().
lock_guard(mutex_type& m, adopt_lock_t);
Preconditions: The calling thread holds a non-shared lock on m.
Effects: Initializes pm with m.
Throws: Nothing.
~lock_guard();
Effects: Equivalent to: pm.unlock()
