NAME

IPC::Concurrency::DBI::Application::Instance - Application instance that represents consumption of the limited resource.

VERSION

Version 1.1.3

SYNOPSIS

This module represents one instance of an application managed by IPC::Concurrency::DBI.

See the documentation of IPC::Concurrency::DBI for more information.

        my $instance = $concurrent_program->start_instance();
        unless ( defined( $instance ) )
        {
                print "Too many instances of $0 are already running.\n";
                exit;
        }

        # [...] Do some work.

        # Now that the application is about to exit, flag the instance as completed.
        # (note: this is implicit when $instance is destroyed).
        $instance->finish();

METHODS

new()

Create a new IPC::Concurrency::DBI::Application::Instance object.

This function should not be called directly and its API could change, instead use IPC::Concurrency::DBI::Application::start_instance().

        # Retrieve the application by name.
        my $instance = IPC::Concurrency::DBI::Application::Instance->new(
                application => $application,
        );

'application': mandatory, an IPC::Concurrency::DBI::Application object.

finish()

Declare that the current instance has finished running and free the slot for a new instance.

INTERNAL METHODS

get_application()

Returns the parent IPC::Concurrency::DBI::Application object.

        my $application = $instance->get_application();

DESTROY()

Automatically clear the slot used by the current instance when the object is destroyed, if finish() has not been called already.
