NAME

AnyEvent::Retry::Coro - AnyEvent::Retry for jobs that run in separate threads

VERSION

version 0.03

SYNOPSIS

    use Coro;

    my $r = AnyEvent::Retry::Coro->new(
        max_tries => 100, # eventually give up
        interval  => { Constant => { interval => 1 } }, # try every second
        try       => {
            die 'out of cake!' if $cake-- < 0;
            return do_science();
        },

    );

    my $neat_gun = $r->run; # keep on trying until you run out of cake

DESCRIPTION

This module makes AnyEvent::Retry work nicely with Coro. You don't need to provide success or failure callbacks anymore, and your task to retry just needs die or return a result.

METHODS

run

This runs the task, blocking the thread until a result is available. If your task encounters an error, this will die. If it's sucessful, it returns the result.

wait

Allows you to run the task without blocking:

    $r->start;
    ...; # do anything
    my $result = $r->wait; # block here

run is implemented exactly like the above.
