NAME ^

Reflex::Interval - A stand-alone multi-shot periodic callback

VERSION ^

This document describes version 0.099, released on April 21, 2013.

SYNOPSIS ^

As with all Reflex objects, Reflex::Interval may be used in many different ways.

Inherit it and override its on_tick() callback, with or without using Moose.

        package App;
        use Reflex::Interval;
        use base qw(Reflex::Interval);

        sub on_tick {
                print "tick at ", scalar(localtime), "...\n";
                shift()->repeat();
        }

Run it as a promise that generates periodic events. All other Reflex objects will also be running while <$pt-next()>> is blocked.

        my $pt = Reflex::Interval->new(
                interval    => 1 + rand(),
                auto_repeat => 1,
        );

        while (my $event = $pt->next()) {
                eg_say("promise timer returned an event ($event->{name})");
        }

Plain old callbacks:

        my $ct = Reflex::Interval->new(
                interval    => 1,
                auto_repeat => 1,
                on_tick     => sub { print "coderef callback triggered\n" },
        );
        Reflex->run_all();

And so on. See Reflex, Reflex::Base and Reflex::Role::Reactive for details.

DESCRIPTION ^
