Class: IMainLoop ./src/peak/running/interfaces.py

Run the reactor event loop, with activity monitoring and timeouts

This is typically used to control the lifetime of an event-driven application. The application invokes run() with the desired parameters once the system reactor is ready to run.

Reactor-driven components should invoke the activityOccurred() method on this interface whenever I/O or useful processing occurs, in order to prevent inactivity timeouts.

Base Classes   
Interface
Methods   
activityOccurred
exitWith
run
  activityOccurred 
activityOccurred ()

Call this periodically to prevent inactivity timeouts.

  exitWith 
exitWith ( self,  exitCode )

Exit the mainloop immediately, returning exitCode

  run 
run (
        stopAfter=0,
        idleTimeout=0,
        runAtLeast=0,
        )

Loop polling for IO, GUI, and scheduled events

stopAfter
No scheduled actions will be invoked after this many seconds. run() will exit soon afterward. (Zero means "run until the reactor stops".)
idleTimeout
If activityOccurred() is not called for this many seconds, stop and return from run(). (Zero means, "don't check for inactivity".)
runAtLeast
run at least this many seconds before an idleTimeout is allowed to occur. (Zero means, "idle timeouts may occur any time after the run starts.")
