pub struct Poll { /* private fields */ }
Expand description

The polling system

This type represents the polling system of calloop, on which you can register your file descriptors. This interface is only accessible in implementations of the EventSource trait.

You only need to interact with this type if you are implementing your own event sources, while implementing the EventSource trait. And even in this case, you can often just use the Generic event source and delegate the implementations to it.

Implementations

Register a new file descriptor for polling

The file descriptor will be registered with given interest, mode and token. This function will fail if given a bad file descriptor or if the provided file descriptor is already registered.

Leaking tokens

If your event source is dropped without being unregistered, the token passed in here will remain on the heap and continue to be used by the polling system even though no event source will match it.

Update the registration for a file descriptor

This allows you to change the interest, mode or token of a file descriptor. Fails if the provided fd is not currently registered.

See note on register() regarding leaking.

Unregister a file descriptor

This file descriptor will no longer generate events. Fails if the provided file descriptor is not currently registered.
