al_emit_user_event() thread safe?
I want to call al_emit_user_event() from a separate thread on an event queue that is being used elsewhere in the program. Is that ok? Do I need to mutex lock all instances of the event_queue to prevent problems?
I may be wrong, but I think the event queues are thread safe. I think they have internal locking mechanisms.
al_emit_user_event() calls _al_event_source_lock before emitting the event, implemented here. So basically, what Edgar said.
