NAME

       "IO::Async::Loop::Epoll" - use "IO::Async" with "epoll" on Linux

SYNOPSIS

        use IO::Async::Loop::Epoll;

        use IO::Async::Stream;
        use IO::Async::Signal;

        my $loop = IO::Async::Loop::Epoll->new();

        $loop->add( IO::Async::Stream->new(
              read_handle => \*STDIN,
              on_read => sub {
                 my ( $self, $buffref ) = @_;
                 while( $$buffref =~ s/^(.*)\r?\n// ) {
                    print "You said: $1\n";
                 }
              },
        ) );

        $loop->add( IO::Async::Signal->new(
              name => 'INT',
              on_receipt => sub {
                 print "SIGINT, will now quit\n";
                 $loop->loop_stop;
              },
        ) );

        $loop->loop_forever();

DESCRIPTION

       This subclass of IO::Async::Loop uses epoll(7) on Linux to perform read-ready and write-
       ready tests so that the O(1) high-performance multiplexing of Linux's epoll_pwait(2)
       syscall can be used.

       The "epoll" Linux subsystem uses a persistent registration system, meaning that better
       performance can be achieved in programs using a large number of filehandles. Each
       epoll_pwait(2) syscall only has an overhead proportional to the number of ready
       filehandles, rather than the total number being watched. For more detail, see the epoll(7)
       manpage.

       This class uses the epoll_pwait(2) system call, which atomically switches the process's
       signal mask, performs a wait exactly as epoll_wait(2) would, then switches it back. This
       allows a process to block the signals it cares about, but switch in an empty signal mask
       during the poll, allowing it to handle file IO and signals concurrently.

CONSTRUCTOR

   new
          $loop = IO::Async::Loop::Epoll->new()

       This function returns a new instance of a "IO::Async::Loop::Epoll" object.

METHODS

       As this is a subclass of IO::Async::Loop, all of its methods are inherited.  Expect where
       noted below, all of the class's methods behave identically to "IO::Async::Loop".

   loop_once
          $count = $loop->loop_once( $timeout )

       This method calls epoll_pwait(2), and processes the results of that call.  It returns the
       total number of "IO::Async::Notifier" callbacks invoked, or "undef" if the underlying
       "epoll_pwait()" method returned an error. If the "epoll_pwait()" was interrupted by a
       signal, then 0 is returned instead.
