in reply to A wholly inadequate reply to an Anonymous Monk

pmichaud,

I must admit that I'm ashamed at the utter lack of respect from some of the immature monks. I certainly appreciate/applaud your efforts and all of the Perl 6 team, and I recognize that you all could be doing anything else, but somehow manage to ignore the petty noise. Thank you all for your collective efforts.

My conspiracy theory is that anonymous monk is not even a Perl programmer, but merely a troll trying to move his pet language up the TIOBE chart by denegrating all things for which he knows nothing about.

Great jobs, troll(s). Now that you've distracted them, can you please let them get back to work?

[ambrus]: Corion: what I don't understand is, if you make a one-shot AnyEvent timer with short timeout, does this code guarantee that the Prima timer can't queue two timeout events before invoking any of them?
[ambrus]: Because that could break AnyEvent code, which is why I added a guard.
[ambrus]: (It might be easier to use the callback scalar as a guard, as in $c and &$c(); $c = ();)
[Corion]: ambrus: Hurr - yes, that might happen, as Prima will queue lots of stuff (Well, Windows will)
[Corion]: But I'm really amazed that it just took this little code (plus the idle handler I have in mind and something else dk suggested)
[Corion]: ambrus: I wrote the handler so that it stops the timer if it's supposed to be a one-shot
