C++20 Concurrency: <semaphore>

In one of my previous articles, I discussed a few locking mechanisms that provide mutual exclusion — a synchronization concept where exclusive access to a single shared resource is provided to exactly one thread at a time. This is achieved by allowing threads to acquire and release ownership of a lock, thus locking down the critical section while the owning thread has ownership of the lock.
