NAME

FFI::Platypus::Closure - Platypus closure object

VERSION

version 0.98

SYNOPSIS

create closure with OO interface

 use FFI::Platypus::Closure;
 my $closure = FFI::Platypus::Closure->new(sub { print "hello world\n" });

create closure from Platypus object

 use FFI::Platypus;
 my $ffi = FFI::Platypus->new;
 my $closure = $ffi->closure(sub { print "hello world\n" });

use closure

 $ffi->function(foo => ['()->void'] => 'void')->call($closure);

DESCRIPTION

This class represents a Perl code reference that can be called from compiled code. When you create a closure object, you can pass it into any function that expects a function pointer. Care needs to be taken with closures because compiled languages typically have a different way of handling lifetimes of objects. You have to make sure that if the compiled code is going to call a closure that the closure object is still in scope somewhere, or has been made sticky, otherwise you may get a segment violation or other mysterious crash.

CONSTRUCTOR

new

 my $closure = FFI::Platypus::Closure->new($coderef);

Create a new closure object; $coderef must be a subroutine code reference.

METHODS

call

 $closure->call(@arguments);
 $closure->(@arguments);

Call the closure from Perl space. May also be invoked by treating the closure object as a code reference.

sticky

 $closure->sticky;

Mark the closure sticky, meaning that it won't be free'd even if all the reference of the object fall out of scope.

unstick

 $closure->unstick;

Unmark the closure as sticky.
