Object Threads emulates Python threading API paradigm. Creating threads by giving some block to constructor is sometime slightly unpractical way of running threads. This library allows encapsulating threads to classes, so class can define itself as thread which can be run by plain method call.
require "thread/object" class Foo include Thread::Object def run sleep 10 puts "Something in thread." end end Foo::new.start! sleep 5 puts "Something in main."
Will print out
"Something in main." and then
"Something in thread.".
Thread object module directly supports
methods only for thread manipulation. For other operations with the
thread, call directly object's
#native_thread property which contains
appropriate native Ruby Thread object. This setup is for avoiding
potential method name conflicts between module and user class.
