NAME

Coro::Handle - non-blocking io with a blocking interface.

SYNOPSIS

 use Coro::Handle;

DESCRIPTION

This module implements io-handles in a coroutine-compatible way, that is, other coroutines can run while reads or writes block on the handle. It does NOT inherit from IO::Handle but uses tied objects.

$fh = new_from_fh Coro::Handle $fhandle [, arg => value...]

Create a new non-blocking io-handle using the given perl-filehandle. Returns undef if no fhandle is given. The only other supported argument is "timeout", which sets a timeout for each operation.

$fh = unblock $fh

This is a convinience function that just calls new_from_fh on the given filehandle. Use it to replace a normal perl filehandle by a non-blocking equivalent.

$fh->writable, $fh->readable

Wait until the filehandle is readable or writable (and return true) or until an error condition happens (and return false).

$fh->readline([$terminator])

Like the builtin of the same name, but allows you to specify the input record separator in a coroutine-safe manner (i.e. not using a global variable).

$fh->autoflush([...])

Always returns true, arguments are being ignored (exists for compatibility only). Might change in the future.

$fh->fileno, $fh->close

Work like their function equivalents.

$fh->timeout([...])

The optional agrument sets the new timeout (in seconds) for this handle. Returns the current (new) value.

0 is a valid timeout, use undef to disable the timeout.

$fh->fh

Returns the "real" (non-blocking) filehandle. Use this if you want to do operations on the file handle you cannot do using the Coro::Handle interface.

BUGS

 - Perl's IO-Handle model is THE bug.
