Detailed Description

Timer class for one-second resolution timers Timer provides a facility which allows module developers to create one-shot timers. The timer can be made to trigger at any time up to a one-second resolution. To use Timer, inherit a class from Timer, then insert your inherited class into the queue using Server::AddTimer(). The Tick() method of your object (which you should override) will be called at the given time.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

Timer::Timer ( long  secs_from_now,
time_t  now,
bool  repeating = false 

Default constructor, initializes the triggering time

secs_from_nowThe number of seconds from now to trigger the timer
nowThe time now
repeatingRepeat this timer every secs_from_now seconds if set to true
virtual Timer::~Timer ( )

Default destructor, does nothing.

Member Function Documentation

void Timer::CancelRepeat ( )

Cancels the repeat state of a repeating timer. If you call this method, then the next time your timer ticks, it will be removed immediately after. You should use this method call to remove a recurring timer if you wish to do so within the timer's Tick event, as calling TimerManager::DelTimer() from within the Timer::Tick() method is dangerous and may cause a segmentation fault. Calling CancelRepeat() is safe in this case.

bool Timer::GetRepeat ( )

Returns true if this timer is set to repeat

long Timer::GetSecs ( )

Returns the interval (number of seconds between ticks) of this timer object.

virtual time_t Timer::GetTimer ( )

Retrieve the current triggering time

virtual void Timer::SetTimer ( time_t  t)

Sets the trigger timeout to a new value

virtual void Timer::Tick ( time_t  TIME)
pure virtual

Called when the timer ticks. You should override this method with some useful code to handle the tick event.

Implemented in RequestTimeout, CacheTimer, and SocketTimeout.
