void al_wait_cond(ALLEGRO_COND *cond, ALLEGRO_MUTEX *mutex)
Introduced in 5.0.0

On entering this function, mutex must be locked by the calling thread. The function will atomically release mutex and block on cond. The function will return when cond is "signalled", acquiring the lock on the mutex in the process.

Example of proper use:

while (something_not_true) {
    al_wait_cond(cond, mutex);

The mutex should be locked before checking the condition, and should be rechecked al_wait_cond returns. al_wait_cond can return for other reasons than the condition becoming true (e.g. the process was signalled). If multiple threads are blocked on the condition variable, the condition may no longer be true by the time the second and later threads are unblocked. Remember not to unlock the mutex prematurely.
