use POE::Future; my $future = POE::Future->new_delay( 10 ) ->then_done( "Hello, world!" ); say $future->get;
This subclass of Future integrates with POE, allowing the
await method to block until the future is ready. It allows
POE-using code to be written that returns
Future instances, so that it can make full use of
Future's abilities, including Future::Utils, and also that modules using it can provide a
Future-based asynchronous interface of their own.
For a full description on how to use Futures, see the Future documentation.
$f = POE::Future->new
Returns a new leaf future instance, which will allow waiting for its result to be made available, using the
$f = POE::Future->new_delay( $after )
Returns a new leaf future instance which will become ready (with an empty result) after the specified delay time.
$f = POE::Future->new_alarm( $at )
Returns a new leaf future instance which will become ready (with an empty result) at the specified alarm time.
To create a delay or alarm timer that will fail instead of succeed, use the
my $f = POE::Future->new_delay( 20 ) ->then_fail( "Timeout" );
