IO::Poll
Object interface to system poll call

IO::Poll - Object interface to system poll call


NAME

IO::Poll - Object interface to system poll call


SYNOPSIS


    use IO::Poll qw(POLLRDNORM POLLWRNORM POLLIN POLLHUP);

    $poll = new IO::Poll;

    $poll->mask($input_handle => POLLRDNORM | POLLIN | POLLHUP);

    $poll->mask($output_handle => POLLWRNORM);

    $poll->poll($timeout);

    $ev = $poll->events($input);


DESCRIPTION

IO::Poll is a simple interface to the system level poll routine.


METHODS

mask ( IO [, EVENT_MASK ] )
If EVENT_MASK is given, then, if EVENT_MASK is non-zero, IO is added to the list of file descriptors and the next call to poll will check for any event specified in EVENT_MASK. If EVENT_MASK is zero then IO will be removed from the list of file descriptors.

If EVENT_MASK is not given then the return value will be the current event mask value for IO.

poll ( [ TIMEOUT ] )
Call the system level poll routine. If TIMEOUT is not specified then the call will block. Returns the number of handles which had events happen, or -1 on error.

events ( IO )
Returns the event mask which represents the events that happend on IO during the last call to poll.

remove ( IO )
Remove IO from the list of file descriptors for the next poll.

handles( [ EVENT_MASK ] )
Returns a list of handles. If EVENT_MASK is not given then a list of all handles known will be returned. If EVENT_MASK is given then a list of handles will be returned which had one of the events specified by EVENT_MASK happen during the last call ti poll
