Overview

A cross thread, reactor scheduled, linear queue.

This class provides a simple queue abstraction on top of the reactor scheduler. It services two primary purposes:

  • API sugar for stateful protocols

  • Pushing processing onto the reactor thread

Examples:


q = EM::Queue.new
q.push('one', 'two', 'three')
3.times do
  q.pop { |msg| puts(msg) }
end

def empty?
  @drain.empty? && @sink.empty?
end

#num_waitingInteger

Note:

This is a peek at the number of jobs that are currently waiting on the Queue

Returns Waiting size

def num_waiting
  @popq.size
end

#pop(*a, &b) ⇒ NilClass

Pop items off the queue, running the block on the reactor thread. The pop will not happen immediately, but at some point in the future, either in the next tick, if the queue has data, or when the queue is populated.

  end
  nil # Always returns nil
end

#push(*items) ⇒ Object Also known as: <<

Push items onto the queue in the reactor thread. The items will not appear in the queue immediately, but will be scheduled for addition during the next reactor tick.
