Overview

This class watches for termination of multiple threads. Basic functionality (wait until specified threads have terminated) can be accessed through the class method ThreadsWait::all_waits. Finer control can be gained using instance methods.

Example:

ThreadsWait.all_waits(thr1, thr2, ...) do |t|
  STDERR.puts "Thread #{t} has terminated."
end

th = ThreadsWait.new(thread1,...)
th.next_wait # next one to be done

Instance Method Details

#all_waitsObject

Waits until all of the specified threads are terminated. If a block is supplied for the method, it is executed for each thread termination.

Raises exceptions in the same manner as next_wait.

end

#empty?Boolean

Returns true if there are no threads in the pool still running.

Returns:

  • (Boolean)

#finished?Boolean

Returns true if any thread has terminated and is ready to be collected.

Returns:

def join(*threads)
  join_nowait(*threads)
  next_wait
end

#join_nowait(*threads) ⇒ Object

Specifies the threads that this object will wait for, but does not actually wait.

    end
  end
end

#next_wait(nonblock = nil) ⇒ Object

Waits until any of the specified threads has terminated, and returns the one that does.

If there is no thread to wait, raises ErrNoWaitingThread. If nonblock is true, and there is no terminated thread, raises ErrNoFinishedThread.
