NAME

Forks::Queue::File - file-based implementation of Forks::Queue

VERSION

0.12

SYNOPSIS

    my $q = Forks::Queue::File->new( file => "queue-file" );
    $q->put( "job1" );
    $q->put( { name => "job2", task => "do something", data => [42,19] } );
    ...
    $q->end;
    for my $w (1 .. $num_workers) {
        if (fork() == 0) {
            my $task;
            while (defined($task = $q->get)) {
                ... perform task in child ...
            }
            exit;
        }
    }

METHODS

See Forks::Queue for an overview of the methods supported by this Forks::Queue implementation.

new

$queue = Forks::Queue::File->new( %opts )

$queue = Forks::Queue->new( impl => 'File', %opts )

The Forks::Queue::File constructor recognized the following configuration options.

  • file

    The name of the file to use to score queue data and metadata. If omitted, a temporary filename is chosen.

    It is strongly recommended not to use a file that would reside on an NFS filesystem, since these filesystems have notorious difficulty with synchronizing files across processes.

  • style

  • limit

  • on_limit

  • join

  • persist

    See "new" in Forks::Queue for descriptions of these options.

BUGS AND LIMITATIONS

As with anything that requires flock, you should avoid allowing the queue file to reside on an NFS drive.
