NAME

Mojo::IOWatcher - Non-blocking I/O watcher

SYNOPSIS

  use Mojo::IOWatcher;

  # Watch if handle becomes readable
  my $watcher = Mojo::IOWatcher->new;
  $watcher->watch($handle => sub {
    my ($watcher, $handle) = @_;
    ...
  });

  # Add a timer
  $watcher->timer(15 => sub {
    my $watcher = shift;
    $watcher->drop_handle($handle);
    say 'Timeout!';
  });

  # Start and stop watcher
  $watcher->start;
  $watcher->stop;

DESCRIPTION

Mojo::IOWatcher is a minimalistic non-blocking I/O watcher and the foundation of Mojo::IOLoop. Mojo::IOWatcher::EV is a good example for its extensibility. Note that this module is EXPERIMENTAL and might change without warning!

EVENTS

Mojo::IOWatcher can emit the following events.

error

  $watcher->on(error => sub {
    my ($watcher, $err) = @_;
    ...
  });

Emitted safely if an error happens.

METHODS

Mojo::IOWatcher inherits all methods from Mojo::EventEmitter and implements the following new ones.

  my $class = Mojo::IOWatcher->detect;

drop_handle

  $watcher->drop_handle($handle);

Drop handle.

drop_timer

  my $success = $watcher->drop_timer($id);
