[zeromq-dev] Using zmq sockets from multiple threads

Hi,

Is it safe to use sockets from multiple threads if you prevent concurrent
access using a mutex?

i.e.

{
  std::lock_guard<std::mutex> lck(send_mtx_);
  ... send a message on the  socket
}

I can also create a new socket each time a new thread calls the function
and use the thread_id as a key but was wondering if using a mutex like the
above would get around that.

Thanks,
Peter
