This module provides a default event registry and an eventloop which may be used by an application if desired. See also the libwww timers defined in the HTTimer module. An application may use this module for:

This module is implemented by HTEvtLst.c, and it is a part of the W3C Sample Code Library.

Event Registry

The libwww event registry binds a socket and operation (FD_READ, FD_WRITE, ...) to a callback function. Events are registered, unregistered, and dispatched as they come in.

Register an Event Handler

For a given socket, reqister a request structure, a set of operations, a HTEventCallback function, and a priority. For this implementation, we allow only a single HTEventCallback function for all operations. and the priority field is ignored.

extern HTEvent_registerCallback HTEventList_register;

Unregister an Event Handler

Remove the registered information for the specified socket for the actions specified in ops. if no actions remain after the unregister, the registered info is deleted, and, if the socket has been registered for notification, the HTEventCallback will be invoked.

extern HTEvent_unregisterCallback HTEventList_unregister;

Unregister ALL Event Handlers

Unregister all sockets. N.B. we just remove them for our internal data structures: it is up to the application to actually close the socket.

extern int HTEventList_unregisterAll (void);

Lookup and Dispatch Event Handlers

Callbacks can be looked up or dispatched based on the socket and operation (read/write/oob)

extern int HTEventList_dispatch (SOCKET s, HTEventType type, ms_t now);
extern HTEvent * HTEventList_lookup (SOCKET s, HTEventType type);

Libwww Default EventLoop

The libwww default eventloop dispatches events to the event registry.

Start and Stop the Event Manager

extern BOOL HTEventInit (void);
extern BOOL HTEventTerminate (void);

Start the Eventloop

That is, we wait for activity from one of our registered channels, and dispatch on that. Under Windows/NT, we must treat the console and sockets as distinct. That means we can't avoid a busy wait, but we do our best.

extern int HTEventList_newLoop (void);

The next version is an old version of the eventloop start. The request is not used for anything and can be NULL.

extern int HTEventList_loop (HTRequest * request);

Stop the Eventloop

Stops the (select based) eventloop immediately. The function does not guarantee that all requests have terminated so it is important that the application does this before this function is called. This can be done using the HTNet_isIdle() function in the HTNet Module

extern void HTEventList_stopLoop (void);
