NAME ^

ZeroMQ::Poller - Convenient socket polling object

SYNOPSIS ^

  use ZeroMQ qw/:all/;

  my $cxt = ZeroMQ::Context->new()
  my $sock = ZeroMQ::Socket->new($cxt, ZMQ_REP);
  $sock->bind("inproc://amazingsocket");

  my $poller = ZeroMQ::Poller->new(
    {
      name      => 'amazing',
      socket    => $sock,
      events    => ZMQ_POLLIN,
      callback  => sub { do_something_amazing },
    },
  );

  $poller->poll();
  do_another_amazing_thing() if $poller->has_event(0);
  do_a_third_amazing_thing() if $poller->has_event('amazing');

DESCRIPTION ^

A ZeroMQ::Poller watches zero or more sockets for events and signals that these have occurred in several ways. Given a list of sockets and events to watch for, it can directly invoke a callback or simply raise a flag.

METHODS ^

new(@poll_items)

Creates a new ZeroMQ::Poller

The constructor accepts a list of hash references ("poll items"), each of which specifies a socket or file descriptor to watch and what to watch it for. In addition, each poll item may specify a callback to invoke or a name by which it may be queried. The accepted keys are:

socket

Contains the ZeroMQ::Socket item to poll.

fd

Contains the file descriptor to poll. One of socket or fd is required; socket has precedence.

events

Some combination of ZMQ_POLLIN, ZMQ_POLLOUT, and ZMQ_POLLERR; the events to trap.

callback

A coderef taking no arguments and emitting no return value, invoked when the specified events occur on the socket or file descriptor. Optional.

name

A string, naming the poll item for later use with has_event.

poll($timeout)

Blocks until there is activity or the given timeout is reached. If no timeout or a negative timeout is specified, blocks indefinitely. If a timeout is given, it is interpreted as microseconds.

has_event($index)

has_event($name)

Returns true if the poll item at the given index or with the given name reported activity during the last call to poll.
