NAME ^

AnyEvent::Impl::Cocoa - AnyEvent adaptor for Cocoa::EventLoop

SYNOPSIS ^

    use AnyEvent;
    use Cocoa::EventLoop;
    
    # do something

DESCRIPTION ^

This module provides NSRunLoop support to AnyEvent.

NSRunLoop is an event loop for Cocoa applications, wrapped by Cocoa::EventLoop. By using this module, you can use Cocoa based API in your AnyEvent application, or AnyEvent within Cocoa applications.

It does not support blocking waits.

BUGS ^

Right now, Cocoa::EventLoop (and this module) are in an early development phase and has some shortcomings and likely bugs.

For example, there seems to be no way to just handle a single event with Cocoa (is there nothing they can implement properly?), so this module currently wakes up at least ten times a second when waiting for events. Also, events caused by timers might get delayed by up to 0.1 seconds.
