aivika-4.6: A multi-method simulation library

Simulation.Aivika.Ref.Base

Description

Tested with: GHC 8.0.1

This module defines a light-weight and more fast version of an updatable reference that depends on the event queue but that doesn't supply with the signal notification.

Synopsis

# Documentation

data Ref a Source #

The Ref type represents a mutable variable similar to the IORef variable but only dependent on the event queue, which allows synchronizing the reference with the model explicitly through the Event monad.

Instances

 Source # Methods

newRef :: a -> Simulation (Ref a) Source #

readRef :: Ref a -> Event a Source #

Read the value of a reference.

writeRef :: Ref a -> a -> Event () Source #

modifyRef :: Ref a -> (a -> a) -> Event () Source #
