NAME

       Sys::Virt::Event - An event loop contract

DESCRIPTION

       The "Sys::Virt::Event" module represents the contract for integrating libvirt with an
       event loop. This package is abstract and intended to be subclassed to provide an actual
       implementation.

METHODS

       register_default()
           Register the default libvirt event loop implementation

       run_default()
           Run a single iteration of the default event loop implementation

       register($impl)
           Register an event loop implementation. The implementation should be a instance of a
           sub-class of the "Sys::Virt::Event" package.

       $self->_run_handle_callback($watch, $fd, $events, $cb, $opaque)
           A helper method for executing a callback in response to one of more $events on the
           file handle $fd. The $watch number is the unique idenifier associated with the file
           descriptor. The $cb and $opaque parameters are the callback and data registered for
           the handle.

       $self->_run_timeout_callback($timer, $cb, $opaque)
           A helper method for executing a callback in response to the expiry of a timeout
           identified by $timer. The $cb and $opaque parameters are the callback and data
           registered for the timeout.

       $self->_free_callback_opaque($ff, $opaque)
           A helper method for freeing the data associated with a callback.  The $ff and $opaque
           parameters are the callback and data registered for the handle/timeout.

       my $watch = Sys::Virt::Event::add_handle($fd, $events, $coderef)
           Adds a watch on the file descriptor $fd for the events $events which is a mask of the
           FILE HANDLE EVENTS constants listed later.  The $coderef parameter is a subroutine to
           invoke when an event is triggered. The subroutine will be passed three parameters, the
           watch identifier, the file descriptor and the event mask. This method returns the
           watch identifier which can be used to update or remove the watch

       Sys::Virt::Event::update_handle($watch, $events)
           Update the event mask for the file descriptor watch $watch to use the events $events.

       Sys::Virt::Event::remove_handle($watch)
           Remove the event mask for the file descriptor watch $watch.

       my $watch = Sys::Virt::Event::add_timeout($frequency, $coderef)
           Adds a timeout to trigger with $frequency milliseconds interval.  The $coderef
           parameter is a subroutine to invoke when an event is triggered. The subroutine will be
           passed one parameter, the timer identifier. This method returns the watch identifier
           which can be used to update or remove the watch

       Sys::Virt::Event::update_timeout($timer, $frequency)
           Update the timeout $timer to have the frequency $frequency milliseconds.

       Sys::Virt::Event::remove_timeout($timer)
           Remove the timeout $timer

CONSTANTS

   FILE HANDLE EVENTS
       When integrating with an event loop the following constants define the file descriptor
       events

       Sys::Virt::Event::HANDLE_READABLE
           The file descriptor has data available for read without blocking

       Sys::Virt::Event::HANDLE_WRITABLE
           The file descriptor has ability to write data without blocking

       Sys::Virt::Event::HANDLE_ERROR
           An error occurred on the file descriptor

       Sys::Virt::Event::HANDLE_HANGUP
           The remote end of the file descriptor closed
