POE::Stage::Ticker(3) User Contributed Perl DocumentationPOE::Stage::Ticker(3)

NAME
       POE::Stage::Ticker - a periodic message generator for POE::Stage

SYNOPSIS
	       sub some_handler	:Handler {
		       my $req_ticker =	POE::Stage::Ticker->new();
		       my $req_ticker_request =	POE::Request->new(
			       stage	   => $req_ticker,
			       method	   => "start_ticking",
			       on_tick	   => "handle_tick",   # Invoke	my handle_tick() method
			       args	   => {
				       interval	 => 10,		     # every 10	seconds.
			       },
		       );
	       }

	       sub handle_tick {
		       my $arg_id;
		       print "Handled tick number $arg_id in a series.\n";
	       }

DESCRIPTION
       POE::Stage::Ticker emits	recurring messages at a	fixed interval.

PUBLIC COMMANDS
   start_ticking (interval => FLOAT)
       Used to request the Ticker to start ticking.  The Ticker	will emit a
       "tick" message every "interval" seconds.

PUBLIC RESPONSES
       Responses are returned by POE::Request->return()	or emit().

   "tick" (id)
       Once start_ticking() has	been invoked, POE::Stage::Ticker emits a
       "tick" event.  The "id" parameter is the	ticker's unique	ID, so that
       ticks from multiple tickers are not confused.

BUGS
       See <http://thirdlobe.com/projects/poe-stage/report/1> for known
       issues.	See <http://thirdlobe.com/projects/poe-stage/newticket>	to
       report one.

       POE::Stage is too young for production use.  For	example, its syntax is
       still changing.	You probably know what you don't like, or what you
       need that isn't included, so consider fixing or adding that, or at
       least discussing	it with	the people on POE's mailing list or IRC
       channel.	 Your feedback and contributions will bring POE::Stage closer
       to usability.  We appreciate it.
