23.10.2 Implementing the external_lock() Method

The [custom-engine.html#custom-engine-api-reference-external_lock external_lock()] method is called at the start of a statement or when a LOCK TABLES statement is issued.

Examples of using external_lock() can be found in the sql/ file, but most storage engines can simply return 0, as is the case with the EXAMPLE storage engine:

int ha_example::external_lock(THD *thd, int lock_type)
