NAME ^

AnyEvent::Digest - A tiny AnyEvent wrapper for Digest::*

VERSION ^

version v0.0.5

SYNOPSIS ^

  use AnyEvent;
  use AnyEvent::Digest;
  my $ctx = AnyEvent::Digest->new('Digest::SHA', opts => [1], unit => 65536, backend => 'aio');
  # In addition to that $ctx can be used as Digest::* object, you can call add*_async() methods
  $ctx->addfile_async($file)->cb(sub {
    # Do something like the followings
    my $ctx = shift->recv;
    print $ctx->hexdigest,"\n";
  });
  AE::cv->recv; # Wait

DESCRIPTION ^

To calculate message digest for large files may take several seconds. It may block your program even if you use AnyEvent. This module is a tiny AnyEvent wrapper for Digest::* modules, not to block your program during digest calculation.

Default backend is to use AnyEvent::idle. You can choose IO::AIO backend. You need install IO::AIO and AnyEvent::AIO for IO::AIO backend.

METHODS ^

In addition to the following methods, other methods are forwarded to the base module. So, you can use an object of this module as if it is an object of base module. However, addfile() calls recv() internally so that AnyEvent backend you use SHOULD supprot blocking wait. If you want to avoid blocking wait, you can use addfile_base() instead.

new($base, %args)

This is a constructor method. $base specifies a module name for base digest implementation, which is expected to be one of Digest::* modules. 'require' is called for the base module, so you don't have to do 'require' explicitly.

Available keys of %args are as follows:

opts

passed to $base::new as @{$args{opts}}. It MUST be an array reference.

unit

specifies an amount of read unit for addfile(). Default to 65536 = 64KiB.

backend

specifies a backend module to handle asynchronous read. Available backends are 'idle' and 'aio'. Default to 'idle'.

add_async(@dat)

Each item in @dat are added by add($dat). Between the adjacent add(), other AnyEvent watchers have chances to run. It returns a condition variable receiving this object itself.

addfile_async($filename)

addfile_async(*handle)

add() is called repeatedly read from $filename or *handle by the specified unit. Between the adjacent add(), other AnyEvent watchers have chances to run. It returns a condition variable receiving this object itself.

add_bits_async()

Same as add_bits(), except it returns a condition variable receiving this object itself.

CAUTION: Currerntly, other AnyEvent watchers have NO chance to run during this call.

addfile()

This method uses blocking wait + addfile_async().

addfile_base()

Forwarded to addfile() in the base module. If you need to avoid blocking wait somewhere, this might be helpful. However, during the call, other AnyEvent watchers are blocked.
