DispatchQueue

DispatchQueue is a simple way to serialize jobs. It was done for crawling things, but could be used in any case that you need to do more than one work at a time.

COMPATIBILITY

USAGE

  • The threaded_way:
[1,2,3].threaded_each{|i|
  sleep 4-i
  puts i
}
3
2
1
[1,2,3].threaded_map{|i| sleep 4-i ; i } #=> [3,2,1]
  • The explicit way:
my_work_queue = DispatchQueue.new(lambda{ sleep 3 ; 5},  lambda{ 10 })
my_work_queue.sort #=> [5, 10]
  • The implicit way:
DQ[ lambda{ sleep 5 ; 3} , Proc.new{ sleep 6; 2 } ].sort #=> [2,3]

CHANGELOG

  • 1.1.0 Create [].threaded_each [].threaded_map (2011/09/22)
