Function Documentation

qb_loop_t* qb_loop_create (void)

Create a new main loop.

Returns:

loop instance.

void qb_loop_destroy (struct qb_loop * l)

int32_t qb_loop_job_add (qb_loop_t * l, enum qb_loop_priority p, void * data, qb_loop_job_dispatch_fn dispatch_fn)

Add a job to the mainloop. This is run in the next cycle of the loop.

Note:

it is a one-shot job.

Parameters:

l pointer to the loop instance
p the priority
data user data passed into the dispatch function
dispatch_fn callback function

Returns:

status (0 == ok, -errno == failure)

int32_t qb_loop_job_del (struct qb_loop * l, enum qb_loop_priority p, void * data, qb_loop_job_dispatch_fn dispatch_fn)

Delete a job from the mainloop. This will try to delete the job if it hasn't run yet.

Note:

this will remove the first job that matches the paramaters (priority, data, dispatch_fn).

Parameters:

l pointer to the loop instance
p the priority
data user data passed into the dispatch function
dispatch_fn callback function

Returns:

status (0 == ok, -errno == failure)

int32_t qb_loop_poll_add (qb_loop_t * l, enum qb_loop_priority p, int32_t fd, int32_t events, void * data, qb_loop_poll_dispatch_fn dispatch_fn)

Add a poll job to the mainloop.

Note:

it is a re-occuring job.

Parameters:

l pointer to the loop instance
p the priority
fd file descriptor.
events (POLLIN|POLLOUT) etc ....
data user data passed into the dispatch function
dispatch_fn callback function

Returns:

status (0 == ok, -errno == failure)

int32_t qb_loop_poll_del (qb_loop_t * l, int32_t fd)

Delete a poll job.

Parameters:

l pointer to the loop instance
fd file descriptor.

Returns:

status (0 == ok, -errno == failure)

int32_t qb_loop_poll_low_fds_event_set (qb_loop_t * l, qb_loop_poll_low_fds_event_fn fn)

Set a callback to receive events on file descriptors getting low.

Parameters:

l pointer to the loop instance
fn callback function.

Returns:

status (0 == ok, -errno == failure)

int32_t qb_loop_poll_mod (qb_loop_t * l, enum qb_loop_priority p, int32_t fd, int32_t events, void * data, qb_loop_poll_dispatch_fn dispatch_fn)

Modify a poll job.

Parameters:

l pointer to the loop instance
p the priority
fd file descriptor.
events (POLLIN|POLLOUT) etc ....
data user data passed into the dispatch function
dispatch_fn callback function

Returns:

status (0 == ok, -errno == failure)

void qb_loop_run (qb_loop_t * l)

Run the main loop.

Parameters:

int32_t qb_loop_signal_add (qb_loop_t * l, enum qb_loop_priority p, int32_t sig, void * data, qb_loop_signal_dispatch_fn dispatch_fn, qb_loop_signal_handle * handle)

Add a signal job. Get a callback on this signal (not in the context of the signal).

Parameters:

l pointer to the loop instance
p the priority
sig (SIGHUP or SIGINT) etc ....
data user data passed into the dispatch function
dispatch_fn callback function
handle (out) a reference to the signal job

Returns:

status (0 == ok, -errno == failure)

int32_t qb_loop_signal_del (qb_loop_t * l, qb_loop_signal_handle handle)

Delete the signal job.

Parameters:

l pointer to the loop instance
handle (in) a reference to the signal job

Returns:

status (0 == ok, -errno == failure)

int32_t qb_loop_signal_mod (qb_loop_t * l, enum qb_loop_priority p, int32_t sig, void * data, qb_loop_signal_dispatch_fn dispatch_fn, qb_loop_signal_handle handle)

Modify the signal job.

Parameters:

l pointer to the loop instance
p the priority
sig (SIGHUP or SIGINT) etc ....
data user data passed into the dispatch function
dispatch_fn callback function
handle (in) a reference to the signal job

Returns:

status (0 == ok, -errno == failure)

void qb_loop_stop (qb_loop_t * l)

Stop the main loop.

Parameters:

l pointer to the loop instance

int32_t qb_loop_timer_add (qb_loop_t * l, enum qb_loop_priority p, uint64_t nsec_duration, void * data, qb_loop_timer_dispatch_fn dispatch_fn, qb_loop_timer_handle * timer_handle_out)

Add a timer to the mainloop.

Note:

it is a one-shot job.

Parameters:

l pointer to the loop instance
p the priority
nsec_duration nano-secs in the future to run the dispatch.
data user data passed into the dispatch function
dispatch_fn callback function
timer_handle_out handle to delete the timer if needed.

Returns:

status (0 == ok, -errno == failure)

int32_t qb_loop_timer_del (qb_loop_t * l, qb_loop_timer_handle th)

Delete a timer that is still outstanding.

Parameters:

l pointer to the loop instance
th handle to delete the timer if needed.

Returns:

status (0 == ok, -errno == failure)

uint64_t qb_loop_timer_expire_time_get (struct qb_loop * l, qb_loop_timer_handle th)

Get the time remaining before it expires.

Note:

if the timer has already expired it will return 0

Parameters:

l pointer to the loop instance
th timer handle.

Returns:

nano seconds left

int32_t qb_loop_timer_is_running (qb_loop_t * l, qb_loop_timer_handle th)

Check to see if a timer that is still outstanding.

Parameters:

l pointer to the loop instance
th handle to delete the timer if needed.
