Syntax:

RELEASE_LOCK(str)

Description:

Releases the lock named by the string str that was obtained with GET_LOCK(). Returns 1 if the lock was released, 0 if the lock was not established by this thread (in which case the lock is not released), and NULL if the named lock did not exist. The lock does not exist if it was never obtained by a call to GET_LOCK() or if it has previously been released.

The DO statement is convenient to use with RELEASE_LOCK().
