// Classes deriving from NonThreadSafe may need to suppress MSVC warning 4275:
// non dll-interface class 'Bar' used as base for dll-interface class 'Foo'.
// There is a specific macro to do it: NON_EXPORTED_BASE(), defined in
// compiler_specific.h
#include "base/compiler_specific.h"

// NonThreadSafe is a helper class used to help verify that methods of a
// class are called from the same thread. One can inherit from this class
// and use CalledOnValidThread() to verify.
// This is intended to be used with classes that appear to be thread safe, but
// aren't. For example, a service or a singleton like the preferences system.
// Example:
// class MyClass : public base::NonThreadSafe {
// public:
// void Foo() {
// DCHECK(CalledOnValidThread());
// ... (do stuff) ...
// }
// }
// Note that base::ThreadChecker offers identical functionality to
// NonThreadSafe, but does not require inheritance. In general, it is preferable
// to have a base::ThreadChecker as a member, rather than inherit from
// NonThreadSafe. For more details about when to choose one over the other, see
// the documentation for base::ThreadChecker.
