       tickit_timer_after_*, tickit_timer_cancel - invoke a callback after a fixed delay


       #include <tickit.h>

       typedef int TickitCallbackFn(Tickit *t, TickitEventflags flags,
           void *user);

       int tickit_timer_after_msec(Tickit *t, int msec,
           TickitBindFlags flags, TickitCallbackFn *fn, void *user);
       int tickit_timer_after_tv(Tickit *t, const struct timeval *after,
           TickitBindFlags flags, TickitCallbackFn *fn, void *user);

       void tickit_timer_cancel(Tickit *t, int id);

       Link with -ltickit.


       The  tickit_timer_after_*() family of functions register a callback function to be invoked
       by the toplevel event loop a fixed delay afterwards. A registered callback will be invoked
       by  a  running call to tickit_run(3). The callback function will be invoked once, and then
       destroyed afterwards. Each function returns  an  opaque  integer  value  which  serves  to
       identify this instance.

       When   invoked,   the   callback   function  is  always  passed  both  TICKIT_EV_FIRE  and
       TICKIT_EV_UNBIND flags to its flags argument. If the callback had been registered with the
       TICKIT_BIND_DESTROY  flag, then it will also be invoked with the TICKIT_EV_DESTROY flag if
       it has not yet been invoked by the time the toplevel instance is destroyed.

       tickit_timer_cancel() removes a timer callback previously registered,  by  the  identifier
       returned  when it was added. If it had been added with the TICKIT_BIND_UNBIND flag then it
       will be invoked with the TICKIT_EV_UNBIND as it is removed.


       tickit_timer_after_msec()  and  tickit_timer_after_tv()  return  an  identifier   integer.
       tickit_timer_cancel() returns no value.
