Detailed Description

A minimal main loop implementation based on the C library's poll() function.

Using the routines defined herein you may create a simple main loop supporting the generic main loop abstraction layer as defined in mainloop-api.h. This implementation is thread safe as long as you access the main loop object from a single thread only.

Typedef Documentation

typedef struct pa_mainloop pa_mainloop

An opaque main loop object.

typedef int(* pa_poll_func)(struct pollfd *ufds, unsigned long nfds, int timeout, void *userdata)

Generic prototype of a poll() like function.

Function Documentation

int pa_mainloop_dispatch ( pa_mainloop m)

Dispatch timeout, io and deferred events from the previously executed poll.

Returns a negative value on error. On success returns the number of source dispatched.

void pa_mainloop_free ( pa_mainloop m)

Free a main loop object.

pa_mainloop_api* pa_mainloop_get_api ( pa_mainloop m)

Return the abstract main loop abstraction layer vtable for this main loop.

No need to free the API as it is owned by the loop and is destroyed when the loop is freed.

int pa_mainloop_get_retval ( pa_mainloop m)

Return the return value as specified with the main loop's quit() routine.

int pa_mainloop_iterate ( pa_mainloop m,
int  block,
int *  retval 
)

Run a single iteration of the main loop.

This is a convenience function for pa_mainloop_prepare(), pa_mainloop_poll() and pa_mainloop_dispatch(). Returns a negative value on error or exit request. If block is nonzero, block for events if none are queued. Optionally return the return value as specified with the main loop's quit() routine in the integer variable retval points to. On success returns the number of sources dispatched in this iteration.

pa_mainloop* pa_mainloop_new ( void  )

Allocate a new main loop object.

int pa_mainloop_poll ( pa_mainloop m)

Execute the previously prepared poll.

Returns a negative value on error.

int pa_mainloop_prepare ( pa_mainloop m,
int  timeout 
)

Prepare for a single iteration of the main loop.

Returns a negative value on error or exit request. timeout specifies a maximum timeout for the subsequent poll, or -1 for blocking behaviour. .

void pa_mainloop_quit ( pa_mainloop m,
int  r 
)

Shutdown the main loop.

int pa_mainloop_run ( pa_mainloop m,
int *  retval 
)

Run unlimited iterations of the main loop object until the main loop's quit() routine is called.

void pa_mainloop_set_poll_func ( pa_mainloop m,
pa_poll_func  poll_func,
void *  userdata 
)

Change the poll() implementation.

void pa_mainloop_wakeup ( pa_mainloop m)

Interrupt a running poll (for threaded systems)
