Hey, Perl's not a bad name for a daughter. It beats calling your kid Java, PHP or C++. Pascal and Ada are based on actual names. And it'd just be cruel to name your kid Python.

Oh yeah. Congrats on being a Perl coder and having a wife (that will actually have kids with you). May you pass on the noblest aspects of programming to the next generation. (My kids have no interest so far... but I have hope for the younger ones still...)

    I'm inclined to agree (and so is my wife, so now all I can do is hope our next is a daughter! .. totally out of boy's names ...). As for my wife.. she is pretty awesome! :D She's currently sitting beside me in a GPLv3 advertisement shirt, so with any luck I can instil the Right Way of programming into my kids.

[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.
[Corion]: ambrus: Hmmm. It makes sense that AnyEvent would implement the push_write itself, but I think I don't have a good idea of where the boundary between AnyEvent and the underlying event system lies... Implementing the timer should give me a better idea
[ambrus]: Corion: push_write is in the higher level abstraction of AnyEvent::Handle, not in the watcher
[Corion]: ambrus: Hmm - rereading Prima::File, that merrily coincides with what Prima does - it tells you "you can read", and you're supposed to read from the fh yourself. I thought it called you with the data already read, which would've been harder to integrate
[ambrus]: you just need an io watcher, created by &AnyEvent::Impl:: Whatever::io(...)
[Corion]: So after talking it through with you even while I'm still not entirely clear on where AE ends and my implementation begins, I think I understand that I only need to implement some smaller parts for each functionality I want to support.
[Corion]: Yeah... and you might even be able to mix and match additional functionality if you have additional async suppliers, like from a separate thread
