Description

TMutex is a synchronization primitive used to guard a shared resource.

Use TMutex to synchronize two or more threads and allow them to safely access a shared resource. A mutex creates a queue of threads that are waiting on a resource and allows only one thread to access that resource at any given moment.

A mutex is basically equivalent to a binary semaphore.
