NAME ^

AnyEvent::Collect - Block till one or more events fire

VERSION ^

version 0.1.0

SYNOPSIS ^

    use AnyEvent;
    use AnyEvent::Collect;

    # Wait for all of a collection of events to trigger once:
    my( $w1, $w2 );
    collect {
        $w1 = AE::timer 2, 0, event { say "two" };
        $w2 = AE::timer 3, 0, event { say "three" };
    }; # Returns after 3 seconds having printed "two" and "three"

    # Wait for any of a collection of events to trigger:
    my( $w3, $w4 );
    collect_any {
        $w3 = AE::timer 2, 0, event { say "two" };
        $w4 = AE::timer 3, 0, event { say "three" };
    };
    # Returns after 2 seconds, having printed 2.  Note however that
    # the other event will still be emitted in another second.  If
    # you were to then execute the sleep below, it would print three.


    # Or using L<ONE>
    use ONE::Timer;
    use AnyEvent::Collect;
    collect {
        ONE::Timer->after( 2 => event { say "two" } );
        ONE::Timer->after( 3 => event { say "three" } );
    }; # As above, returns after three seconds having printed "two" and
       # "three"

    # And because L<ONE> is based on L<MooseX::Event> and L<MooseX::Event>
    # is integrated with L<Event::Wrappable>, you can just pass in raw subs
    # rather then using the event helper:

    collect_any {
        ONE::Timer->after( 2 => sub { say "two" } );
        ONE::Timer->after( 3 => sub { say "three" } );
    }; # Returns after 2 seconds having printed "two"

DESCRIPTION ^

This allows you to reduce a group of unrelated events into a single event. Either when the first event is emitted, or after all events have been emitted at least once.

For your convenience this re-exports the event helper from Event::Wrappable. Only event listeners created with it or via a class that integrates with Event::Wrappable (eg, MooseX::Event) will be captured.

HELPERS ^

sub event( CodeRef $todo )

See Event::Wrappable for details.

sub collect( CodeRef $todo )

sub collect_all( CodeRef $todo )

Will return after all of the events declared inside the collect block have been emitted at least once.

sub collect_any( CodeRef $todo )

Will return after any of the events declared inside the collect block have been emitted at least once. Note that it doesn't actually cancel the unemitted events-- you'll have to do that yourself, if that's what you want.
