Class Method Details

.currentAsync::Task

Lookup the Async::Task for the current fiber. Raise RuntimeError if none is available.

Raises:

  • (RuntimeError)

    if task was not #set! for the current fiber.

183
# File 'lib/async/task.rb', line 181

def self.current
	Thread.current[:async_task] or raise RuntimeError, "No async task available!"
end

.current?Async::Task?

Check if there is a task defined for the current fiber.

# File 'lib/async/task.rb', line 187

def self.current?
	Thread.current[:async_task]
end

.yield {|result| ... } ⇒ Object

Yield the unerlying result for the task. If the result is an Exception, then that result will be raised an its exception.

Yields:

  • (result)

    result of the task if a block if given.

Raises:

  • (Exception)

    if the result is an exception
