in thread How I usually read my mail:

I used to use pine several years ago, but use a web interface now. Your mention of pine was a bit nostalgic - I don't use it too much any more.

    Oh, I much prefer pine. I've been using it for ... oh, I guess it was 10 years in August! Web mail can be nifty, but private webmail servers are usually too poky for my tastes, and public webservers are too unreliable (just tried logging in to my gmail account ... service down!) They can take my pine. They'll just have to pry it from my cold, dead fingers. ;->
      I agree -- in fact, my webmail client is down late at night every few week nights, so I still use pine (via ssh) from time to time when I must and should be in bed.

[Corion]: ambrus: Yeah, I read that, but it's somewhat vague as in what I really have to implement, and where/how my "other" mainloop should/needs to call AnyEvent
[Corion]: (or maybe I just work better from existing code that I munge until it works and I understand it rather than a short abstract text like "implement everything that's needed" ;) )
[ambrus]: Corion: I think in this case you can get away with only a stub for idle, one that always dies when you create it, because AnyEvent::HTTP doesn't use it, not even indirectly through AnyEvent::Handle or AnyEvent::Socket or AnyEvent::DNS.
[Corion]: The "and I understand it" part is optional.
[Corion]: ambrus: Yes but I also need to implement the file / IO watcher, because Prima has that (in Prima::File), and I need to supply the appropriate thing to make push_write etc. work with Prima
[ambrus]: Corion: yes, you need to implement the io watcher, which should be simple because Prima::File is basically that, and the timer watcher form Prima::Timer
[Corion]: ... or so I think. As I said, I'm somewhat vague on how to make AnyEvent cooperate with a callback-driven IO event loop that gives me callbacks when data is available or can be written
[ambrus]: what push_write thing? I don't think you need that. that's implemented generically by AnyEvent::Handle
[Corion]: ambrus: Yeah, that's what I think as well. But you give me an idea, maybe I should start with implementing the timer, as that should be far simpler and with fewer edge-cases/nasty interaction than the file watcher
[ambrus]: You only provide the watcher part that tells when the handle is readable or writable, not the actual writing and reading.
