Class used to manage timeout handlers across multiple threads.

Timeout handlers should be managed by using the class methods which are synchronized.

id = TimeoutHandler.register(10, Timeout::Error)
begin
  sleep 20
  puts 'foo'
ensure
  TimeoutHandler.cancel(id)
end

will raise Timeout::Error

id = TimeoutHandler.register(10, Timeout::Error)
begin
  sleep 5
  puts 'foo'
ensure
  TimeoutHandler.cancel(id)
end

will print 'foo'

TimeoutMutex = Mutex.new # :nodoc:
 

Mutex used to synchronize access across threads

Class Public methods
cancel(id)

Cancels the timeout handler id

# File lib/webrick/utils.rb, line 144
def TimeoutHandler.cancel(id)
  instance.cancel(Thread.current, id)
end
new()

Creates a new TimeoutHandler. You should use ::register and ::cancel instead of creating the timeout handler directly.

# File lib/webrick/utils.rb, line 151
def initialize
  TimeoutMutex.synchronize{
    @timeout_info = Hash.new
  }
  @queue = Queue.new
  @watcher = Thread.start{
    to_interrupt = []
    while true
      now = Time.now
      wakeup = nil

      TimeoutMutex.synchronize{
        @timeout_info.each {|thread, ary|

register(seconds, exception)

Registers a new timeout handler

time

Timeout in seconds

exception

Exception to raise when timeout elapsed

# File lib/webrick/utils.rb, line 138
def TimeoutHandler.register(seconds, exception)
  instance.register(Thread.current, Time.now + seconds, exception)
end
Instance Public methods
cancel(thread, id)

Cancels the timeout handler id

# File lib/webrick/utils.rb, line 215
def cancel(thread, id)
  TimeoutMutex.synchronize{
    if ary = @timeout_info[thread]
      ary.delete_if{|info| info.object_id == id }

        @timeout_info.delete(thread)
      end
      return true
    end
    return false
  }
end
interrupt(thread, id, exception)

Interrupts the timeout handler id and raises exception

# File lib/webrick/utils.rb, line 192
def interrupt(thread, id, exception)
  if cancel(thread, id) && thread.alive?
    thread.raise(exception, "execution timeout")
  end
end
register(thread, time, exception)

Registers a new timeout handler

time

Timeout in seconds

exception

Exception to raise when timeout elapsed

# File lib/webrick/utils.rb, line 203
def register(thread, time, exception)
  info = nil
  TimeoutMutex.synchronize{
    @timeout_info[thread] ||= Array.new
    @timeout_info[thread] << (info = [time, exception])
  }
  @queue.push nil
  return info.object_id
