NAME

AnyEvent::ForkObject - Async access on objects.

SYNOPSIS

    use AnyEvent::ForkObject;
    use DBI;

    my $fo = new AnyEvent::ForkObject;

    $fo->do(
        module => 'DBI',
        method => 'connect',
        args => [ 'dbi:mysql...' ],
        cb => sub {
            my ($status, $dbh) = @_;


            $dbh->selectrow_array('SELECT ?', undef, 1 + 1, sub {
                my ($status, $result) = @_;
                print "$result\n";   # prints 2
            });
        }
    );


    use AnyEvent::Tools qw(async_repeat);

    $dbh->prepare('SELECT * FROM tbl', sub {
        my ($status, $sth) = @_;
        $sth->execute(sub {
            my ($status, $rv) = @_;

            # fetch 30 rows
            async_repeat 30 => sub {
                my ($guard) = @_;

                $sth->fetchrow_hashref(sub {
                    my ($status, $row) = @_;
                    undef $guard;

                    # do something with $row
                });
            };

        });
    });

DESCRIPTION

There are a lot of modules that provide object interface. Using the module You can use them in async mode.

METHODS

new

Constructor. Creates an instance that contains fork jail.

do

Creates an object inside jail. It receives the following named arguments:

require

Do require inside jail. If the argument is exists, module, method and wantarray arguments will be ignored.

module

Module name. For example 'DBI'.

method

Constructor name. Default value is 'new'.

wantarray

Context for method. Default is 0 (SCALAR).

cb

Done callback. The first argument is a status:

die

The method has thrown exception. The next argument contains $@.

fatal

A fatal error was occured (for example fork jail was killed).

ok

Method has done. The following arguments contain all data that were returned by the method.

If "method" returns blessed object, it will provide all its methods in modified form. Each method will receive one or two additional arguments:

result callback

A callback that will be called after method has done.

wantarray

Context flag for method. Default value is 0 (SCALAR).

All objects provide additional method fo_attr to access their field. Example:

    # set attribute
    $dbh->fo_attr(RaiseError => 1, sub { my ($status, $attr) = @_; ... });

    # get attribute
    $dbh->fo_attr('RaiseError', sub { my ($status, $attr) = @_; ... });
