./devel/libev, Full-featured and high-performance event loop

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 4.25, Package name: libev-4.25, Maintainer: tonio

Libev is modelled (very losely) after libevent and the Event perl
module, but is faster, scales better and is more correct, more
featureful, and smaller. Some of the specialties of libev not
commonly found elsewhere are:

- extensive and detailed, readable documentation (not doxygen garbage).
- fully supports fork, can detect fork in various ways and automatically
re-arms kernel mechanisms that do not support fork.
- highly optimised select, poll, epoll, kqueue and event ports backends.
- filesystem object (path) watching (with optional linux inotify support).
- wallclock-based times (using absolute time, cron-like).
- relative timers/timeouts (handle time jumps).
- fast intra-thread communication between multiple
event loops (with optional fast linux eventfd backend).
- extremely easy to embed.
- very small codebase, no bloated library.
- fully extensible by being able to plug into the event loop,
integrate other event loops, integrate other event loop users.
- very little memory use (small watchers, small event loop data).
- optional C++ interface allowing method and function callbacks
at no extra memory or runtime overhead.
- optional Perl interface with similar characteristics
- support for other languages (multiple C++ interfaces, D, Ruby,
Python) available from third-parties.

Log message:
libev: updated to 4.25

4.25:
- INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: EV_THROW was renamed to EV_NOEXCEPT
  (EV_THROW sitll provided) and now uses noexcept on C++11 or newer.
- move the darwin select workaround highe rin ev.c, as newer versions of
  darwin managed to break their broken select even more.
- ANDROID => __ANDROID__ (reported by enh@google.com).
- disable epoll_create1 on android because it has broken header files
  and google is unwilling to fix them (reported by enh@google.com).
- avoid a minor compilation warning on win32.
- c++: remove deprecated dynamic throw() specifications.
- c++: improve the (unsupported) bad_loop exception class.
- backport perl ev_periodic example to C, untested.
- update libecb, biggets change is to include a memory fence
  in ECB_MEMORY_FENCE_RELEASE on x86/amd64.
- minor autoconf/automake modernisation.

Log message:
4.24:
- bump version to 4.24, as the release tarball inexplicably
  didn't have the right version in ev.h, even though the cvs-tagged
  version did have the right one

4.23:
- move some declarations at the beginning to help certain retarded
  microsoft compilers, even though their documentation claims
  otherwise

Log message:
Changes 4.22:
- when epoll detects unremovable fds in the fd set, rebuild
  only the epoll descriptor, not the signal pipe, to avoid
  SIGPIPE in ev_async_send. This doesn't solve it on fork,
  so document what needs to be done in ev_loop_fork
- remove superfluous sys/timeb.h include on win32
- updated libecb.

Log message:
Add SHA512 digests for distfiles for devel category

Issues found with existing distfiles:
	distfiles/eclipse-sourceBuild-srcIncluded-3.0.1.zip
	distfiles/fortran-utils-1.1.tar.gz
	distfiles/ivykis-0.39.tar.gz

	distfiles/pvs-3.2-system.tgz
No changes made to these distinfo files.

Otherwise, existing SHA1 digests verified and found to be the same on
the machine holding the existing distfiles (morden).  All existing
SHA1 digests retained for now as an audit trail.
