NAME

Coro::Timer - simple timer package, independent of used event loops

SYNOPSIS

 use Coro::Timer;

DESCRIPTION

This package implements a simple timer callback system which works independent of the event loop mechanism used. If no event mechanism is used, it is emulated. The Coro::Event module overwrites functions with versions better suited.

This module is not subclassable.

$flag = timeout $seconds;

This function will wake up the current coroutine after $seconds seconds and sets $flag to true (it is false intiially). If $flag goes out of scope earlier nothing happens. This is used to implement the timed_down, timed_wait etc. primitives. It is used like this:

   sub timed_wait {
      my $timeout = Coro::Timer::timeout 60;

      while (condition false) {
         schedule; # wait until woken up or timeout
         return 0 if $timeout; # timed out
      }
      return 1; # condition satisfied
   }
sleep $seconds

This function works like the built-in sleep, except maybe more precise and, most important, without blocking other coroutines.

$timer = new Coro::Timer at/after => xxx, cb => \&yyy;

Create a new timer.

$timer->cancel

Cancel the timer (the callback will no longer be called).
