data MBox t a Source

An MBox is a read/write-only MVar, depending on its first type parameter. Used to communicate with server processes.

receive :: MonadConc m => Inbox a -> m aSource

Block until a message arrives in a mailbox, then return it.

spawn :: MonadConc m => (Inbox a -> m ()) -> m (Outbox a)Source

Creates a generic process and returns a MBox which may be used to pass messages to it. While it is possible for a process created using spawn to transmit its inbox to someone else, this is a very bad idea; don't do it.

statefully :: MonadConc m => st -> (st -> evt -> m (Maybe st)) -> m (Outbox evt)Source

Creates a generic stateful process. This process is a function taking a state and an event argument, returning an updated state or Nothing. statefully creates a MBox that is used to pass events to the process. Whenever a value is written to this MBox, that value is passed to the process function together with the function's current state. If the process function returns Nothing, the process terminates. If it returns a new state, the process again blocks on the event MBox, and will use the new state to any future calls to the server function.

(!) :: MonadConc m => Outbox a -> a -> m ()Source

Write a value to a MBox. Named after the Erlang message sending operator, as both are intended for passing messages to processes. This operation does not block until the message is delivered, but returns immediately.

(<!) :: MonadConc m => Outbox a -> m a -> m ()Source

Perform a Client computation, then write its return value to the given pipe. Mnemonic: the operator is a combination of <- and !. Just like (!), this operation is non-blocking.

wait :: Int -> CIO ()Source

Wait for n milliseconds.
