Functions to Implement
This is a listing of the public API of libuv. It's here to organize the bindings into logical submodules and mark the implementation progress.
uv_close: close a request handle. This MUST be called on each handle before memory is released.
luv_set_handler: sets the event handler for a named event on the environment of this userdata
luv_new_udp: Create a new udp instance
uv_udp_bind: Bind to a IPv4 address and port.
uv_udp_bind6: Bind to a IPv6 address and port.
uv_udp_send: Send data
uv_udp_send6: send data
uv_udp_recv_start: start getting data
uv_udp_recv_stop: Stop listening for incoming datagrams.
luv_new_fs_watcher: create a new file watcher
uv_shutdown: Shutdown the outgoing (write) side of a duplex stream.
uv_accept: accept a connection after the callback has been called
uv_read_start: start reading data from an incoming stream
uv_read_stop: stop the stream?
uv_read2_start: extended read that can pass file descriptors
uv_write: write data to a stream, handles ordering for you
uv_write2: extended write that can pass file descriptors
luv_new_tcp: Create a new tcp instance
uv_tcp_bind: bind to an IPv4 port
uv_tcp_bind6: bind to an IPv6 port
uv_tcp_getsockname: get info about own end of socket
uv_tcp_getpeername: get info about remote end
uv_tcp_connect: make an IPv4 connection
uv_tcp_connect6: make an IPv6 connection
luv_new_pipe: Create a new pipe instance
uv_pipe_open: Opens an existing file descriptor or HANDLE as a pipe.
luv_new_tty: Create a new tty instance
uv_tty_set_mode: Set mode. 0 for normal, 1 for raw.
uv_tty_get_winsize: Gets the current Window size.
uv_fs_close: close an FD
uv_fs_open: open a file
uv_fs_read: read a chunk from a file
uv_fs_unlink: unlink (delete) a file
uv_fs_write: write a chunk to a file
uv_fs_mkdir: make a directory
uv_fs_rmdir: remove a directory
uv_fs_readdir: read a directory
uv_fs_stat: stat a file
uv_fs_rename: rename a file
uv_fs_fsync: fsync a file
uv_fs_ftruncate: truncate a file
uv_fs_sendfile: use kernel level sendfile?
uv_fs_chmod: change permissions
uv_spawn: Initializes uv_process_t and starts the process
uv_process_kill: Kills the process with the specified signal
uv_timer_start: start a timer
uv_timer_stop: stop the timer
uv_timer_again: Stop the timer, and if it is repeating restart it using the repeat value as the timeout
uv_timer_set_repeat: Set the repeat value
uv_timer_get_repeat: get the repeat value
Timestamp Functions ?
uv_now: get current timestamp
uv_hrtime: timestamp with nanosecond precision
uv_ares_init_options: c-ares integration initialize and terminate
uv_ares_destroy: destroy c-ares integration
uv_getaddrinfo: Asynchronous getaddrinfo(3).
Event Loop functions
uv_run: starts a loop and blocks till it's done
uv_unref: Manually modify the event loop's reference count. Useful if the user wants to have a handle or timeout that doesn't keep the loop alive.
uv_prepare_stop: Every active prepare handle gets its callback called exactly once per loop iteration, just before the system blocks to wait for completed i/o.
uv_check_stop: Every active check handle gets its callback called exactly once per loop iteration, just after the system returns from blocking.
uv_idle_stop: Every active idle handle gets its callback called repeatedly until it is stopped. This happens after all other types of callbacks are processed. When there are multiple "idle" handles active, their callbacks are called in turn.
uv_is_active: Returns 1 if the prepare/check/idle handle has been started, 0 otherwise. For other handle types this always returns 1.
Misc and Utility
uv_guess_handle: Used to detect what type of stream should be used with a given file descriptor. For isatty() functionality use this function and test for UV_TTY.
uv_queue_work: generic work queue hook
uv_exepath: find the path of the executable
Indentation denotes inheritance
luv_handle: Generic handle
luv_udp: a plain udp handle
luv_fs_watcher: a filesystem watcher
luv_process: represents a sub proces
luv_stream: a fifo stream of data
luv_tcp: a tcp network connection
luv_pipe: a named socket or domain socket
luv_tty: the terminal as a stream/socket
