Name

ztimerset - Class for timer set

Synopsis

//  This is a draft class, and may change without notice. It is disabled in
//  stable builds by default. If you use this in applications, please ask
//  for it to be pushed to stable state. Use --enable-drafts to enable.
#ifdef CZMQ_BUILD_DRAFT_API
// Callback function for timer event.
typedef void (ztimerset_fn) (
    int timer_id, void *arg);

//  *** Draft method, for development use, may change without warning ***
//  Create new timer set.
CZMQ_EXPORT ztimerset_t *
    ztimerset_new (void);

//  *** Draft method, for development use, may change without warning ***
//  Destroy a timer set
CZMQ_EXPORT void

//  *** Draft method, for development use, may change without warning ***
//  Add a timer to the set. Returns timer id if OK, -1 on failure.
CZMQ_EXPORT int
    ztimerset_add (ztimerset_t *self, size_t interval, ztimerset_fn handler, void *arg);

//  *** Draft method, for development use, may change without warning ***
//  Cancel a timer. Returns 0 if OK, -1 on failure.
CZMQ_EXPORT int

//  *** Draft method, for development use, may change without warning ***
//  Set timer interval. Returns 0 if OK, -1 on failure.
//  This method is slow, canceling the timer and adding a new one yield better performance.
CZMQ_EXPORT int
    ztimerset_set_interval (ztimerset_t *self, int timer_id, size_t interval);

//  *** Draft method, for development use, may change without warning ***
//  Reset timer to start interval counting from current time. Returns 0 if OK, -1 on failure.
//  This method is slow, canceling the timer and adding a new one yield better performance.

//  *** Draft method, for development use, may change without warning ***
//  Return the time until the next interval.
//  Should be used as timeout parameter for the zpoller wait method.
//  The timeout is in msec.
CZMQ_EXPORT int
    ztimerset_timeout (ztimerset_t *self);

//  *** Draft method, for development use, may change without warning ***
//  Invoke callback function of all timers which their interval has elapsed.
//  Should be call after zpoller wait method.
//  Returns 0 if OK, -1 on failure.

//  *** Draft method, for development use, may change without warning ***
//  Self test of this class.

Description

ztimerset - timer set

Please add @discuss section in ./../src/ztimerset.c.

Example

From ztimerset_test method

// Simple create/destroy test
ztimerset_t *self = ztimerset_new ();
assert (self);

// Adding timer
bool timer_invoked = false;
int timer_id = ztimerset_add (self, 100, handler, &timer_invoked);
assert (timer_id != -1);
int rc = ztimerset_execute (self);
assert (rc == 0);
assert (!timer_invoked);
int timeout = ztimerset_timeout (self);
assert (timeout > 0);
zclock_sleep (timeout);
rc = ztimerset_execute (self);
assert (rc == 0);
assert (timer_invoked);

// Cancel timer
timeout = ztimerset_timeout (self);
assert (timeout > 0);
rc = ztimerset_cancel (self, timer_id);
assert (rc == 0);
timeout = ztimerset_timeout (self);
assert(timeout == -1);

// Reset a timer
timer_id = ztimerset_add (self, 100, handler, &timer_invoked);
assert (timer_id != -1);
timeout = ztimerset_timeout (self);
assert (timeout > 0);
zclock_sleep (timeout / 2);
timeout = ztimerset_timeout (self);
rc = ztimerset_reset(self, timer_id);
assert (rc == 0);
int timeout2 = ztimerset_timeout (self);
assert (timeout2 > timeout);
rc = ztimerset_cancel (self, timer_id);
assert (rc == 0);

// Set interval
timer_id = ztimerset_add (self, 100, handler, &timer_invoked);
assert (timer_id != -1);
timeout = ztimerset_timeout (self);
rc = ztimerset_set_interval(self, timer_id, 200);
timeout2 = ztimerset_timeout (self);
assert (timeout2 > timeout);

ztimerset_destroy (&self);

#if defined (__WINDOWS__)
zsys_shutdown(); #endif
