critical=(p1) public

Sets the status of the global “thread critical” condition and returns it. When set to true, prohibits scheduling of any existing thread. Does not block new threads from being created and run. Certain thread operations (such as stopping or killing a thread, sleeping in the current thread, and raising an exception) may cause a thread to be scheduled even when in a critical section. Thread::critical is not intended for daily use: it is primarily there to support folks writing threading libraries.
