ivykis is a library for asynchronous I/O readiness notification.
This package contains files needed to develop applications using
ivykis.

Library Functions (Section 3)
iv_event
iv_event provides a way for delivering events to ivykis(3) recipients across thread boundaries. The intended event recipient calls IV_EVENT_INIT on a struct...
iv_event_raw
iv_event_raw provides a way for delivering events to ivykis(3) recipients across thread and process boundaries. The intended event recipient calls...
iv_examples
ivykis is initialised by calling iv_init(3). This function is the first function to call when dealing with ivykis -- it has to be called before registering file...
iv_fatal
iv_fatal aborts the running program, after possibly emitting an error message. The fmt parameter is a printf(3)-style format string, the message to be logged...
iv_fd
The functions iv_fd_register and iv_fd_unregister register, respectively unregister, a file descriptor with the current thread's ivykis event loop. Calling...
iv_fd_pump
iv_fd_pump provides a way for moving data between two file descriptors. To set up iv_fd_pump for moving data, call IV_FD_PUMP_INIT on a struct iv_fd_pump...
iv_init
iv_init initialises the current thread's ivykis event loop. Each thread that wants to use ivykis must call iv_init before any other ivykis functions are called...
iv_inotify
The iv_inotify_register function registers an iv_inotify instance with the iv_inotify(3) module. The inotify parameter is a pointer to the iv_inotify structure...
iv_main
iv_main enters the current thread's ivykis main loop. The ivykis main loop consists of checking the status of the registered file descriptors, timers and tasks...
iv_popen
iv_popen provides ivykis(3) applications with an asynchronous version of popen(3) that is integrated with the ivykis event loop. After initialising a struct...
iv_quit
iv_quit signals ivykis to exit the current thread's main loop. If called from any callback function, iv_quit will cause the iv_main(3) function called from the...
iv_signal
iv_signal provides a way for ivykis(3) applications to handle POSIX signals, by integrating them with the ivykis event loop. An ivykis application desiring...
iv_task
The functions iv_task_register and iv_task_unregister register, respectively unregister, a task with the current thread's ivykis event loop. iv_task_registered...
iv_thread
iv_thread_create is a wrapper around pthread_create(3) which will maintain an ivykis main loop reference in the calling thread (which must be an ivykis(3)...
iv_time
iv_now is a global variable that represents a monotonic timer. The contents of iv_now might be stale. Calling the function iv_validate_now ensures that the...
iv_timer
The functions iv_timer_register and iv_timer_unregister register, respectively unregister, a timer with the current thread's ivykis event loop...
iv_tls
The iv_tls interface provides thread-local storage handling to ivykis modules. An ivykis module can arrange for an amount of memory to be allocated for its use...
iv_wait
iv_wait is an ivykis(3) wrapper around wait4(2), integrating process state change notification with the ivykis event loop. An ivykis application desiring...
iv_work
Calling iv_work_pool_create on a struct iv_work_pool object previously initialised by IV_WORK_POOL_INIT creates a pool of worker threads that can be used to...
ivykis
ivykis is a library for asynchronous I/O readiness notification. It is a thin, portable wrapper around OS-provided mechanisms such as epoll_create(2)...
