Timer

[Source]

The Timer class represents a timer that fires after an expiration time, and then fires at an interval. When a Timer fires, it calls the apply method of the TimerNotify object that was passed to it when it was created.

The following example waits 5 seconds and then fires every 2 seconds, and when it fires the TimerNotify object prints how many times it has been called:

use "time"

actor Main
  new create(env: Env) =>
    let timers = Timers
    let timer = Timer(Notify(env), 5_000_000_000, 2_000_000_000)
    timers(consume timer)

class Notify is TimerNotify
  let _env: Env
  var _counter: U32 = 0
  new iso create(env: Env) =>
    _env = env
  fun ref apply(timer: Timer, count: U64): Bool =>
    _env.out.print(_counter.string())
    _counter = _counter + 1
    true
class ref Timer

Constructors

create

[Source]

Create a new timer. The expiration time should be a nanosecond count until the first expiration. The interval should also be in nanoseconds.

new iso create(
  notify: TimerNotify iso,
  expiration: U64 val,
  interval: U64 val = 0)
: Timer iso^

Parameters

Returns


abs

[Source]

Creates a new timer with an absolute expiration time rather than a relative time. The expiration time is wall-clock adjusted system time.

new ref abs(
  notify: TimerNotify ref,
  expiration: (I64 val , I64 val),
  interval: U64 val = 0)
: Timer ref^
