Providing you have man pages installed, you can enter man 2 futex and man 7 futex to learn the basics. From your previous question, you have already seen man 2 futex.
The man pages make perfect sense to me but I suppose I've been around for a while. If after reading man 7 futex you still have a question, please post it and I'll try to explain further.
