NAME

Test2::API::Instance - Object used by Test2::API under the hood

CONTENTS

EXPERIMENTAL RELEASE

This is an experimental release. Using this right now is not recommended.

DESCRIPTION

This object encapsulates the global shared state tracked by Test2. A single global instance of this package is stored (and obscured) by the Test2::API package.

There is no reason to directly use this package. This package is documented for completeness. This package can change, or go away completely at any time. Directly using, or monkeypatching this package is not supported in any way shape or form.

SYNOPSIS



    use Test2::API::Instance;

    my $obj = Test2::API::Instance->new;



$pid = $obj->pid PID of this instance.
$obj->tid Thread ID of this instance.
$obj->reset() Reset the object to defaults.
$obj->load() Set the internal state to loaded, and run and stored post-load callbacks.
$bool = $obj->loaded Check if the state is set to loaded.
$arrayref = $obj->post_load_callbacks Get the post-load callbacks.
$obj->add_post_load_callback(sub { ... }) Add a post-load callback. If load() has already been called then the callback will be immedietly executed. If load() has not been called then the callback will be stored and executed later when load() is called.
$hashref = $obj->contexts() Get a hashref of all active contexts keyed by hub id.
$arrayref = $obj->context_acquire_callbacks Get all context acquire callbacks.
$arrayref = $obj->context_init_callbacks Get all context init callbacks.
$arrayref = $obj->context_release_callbacks Get all context release callbacks.
$obj->add_context_init_callback(sub { ... }) Add a context init callback. Subs are called every time a context is created. Subs get the newly created context as their only argument.
$obj->add_context_release_callback(sub { ... }) Add a context release callback. Subs are called every time a context is released. Subs get the released context as their only argument. These callbacks should not call release on the context.
$obj->set_exit() This is intended to be called in an END { ... } block. This will look at test state and set $?. This will also call any end callbacks, and wait on child processes/threads.
$obj->ipc_enable_shm() Turn on SHM for IPC (if possible)
$shm_id = $obj->ipc_shm_id() If SHM is enabled for IPC this will be the shm_id for it.
$shm_size = $obj->ipc_shm_size() If SHM is enabled for IPC this will be the size of it.
$shm_last_val = $obj->ipc_shm_last() If SHM is enabled for IPC this will return the last SHM value seen.
$obj->set_ipc_pending($val) use the IPC SHM to tell other processes and threads there is a pending event. $val should be a unique value no other thread/process will generate.

<B>Note:B> This will also make the current process see a pending event. It does not set ipc_shm_last(), this is important because doing so could hide a previous change.

$pending = $obj->get_ipc_pending() This returns -1 if SHM is not enabled for IPC.

This returns 0 if the SHM value matches the last known value, which means there are no pending events.

This returns 1 if the SHM value has changed, which means there are probably pending events.

When 1 is returned this will set $obj->ipc_shm_last().

$drivers = $obj->ipc_drivers Get the list of IPC drivers.
$obj->add_ipc_driver($DRIVER_CLASS) Add an IPC driver to the list. The most recently added IPC driver will become the global one during initialization. If a driver is added after initialization has occurred a warning will be generated:



    "IPC driver $driver loaded too late to be used as the global ipc driver"



$bool = $obj->ipc_polling Check if polling is enabled.
$obj->enable_ipc_polling Turn on polling. This will cull events from other processes and threads every time a context is created.
$obj->disable_ipc_polling Turn off IPC polling.
$bool = $obj->no_wait
$bool = $obj->set_no_wait($bool) Get/Set no_wait. This option is used to turn off process/thread waiting at exit.
$arrayref = $obj->exit_callbacks Get the exit callbacks.
$obj->add_exit_callback(sub { ... }) Add an exit callback. This callback will be called by set_exit().
$bool = $obj->finalized Check if the object is finalized. Finalization happens when either ipc(), stack(), or format() are called on the object. Once finalization happens these fields are considered unchangeable (not enforced here, enforced by Test2).
$ipc = $obj->ipc Get the one true IPC instance.
$stack = $obj->stack Get the one true hub stack.
$formatter = $obj->formatter Get the global formatter. By default this is the Test2::Formatter::TAP package. This could be any package that implements the write() method. This can also be an instantiated object.
$bool = $obj->formatter_set() Check if a formatter has been set.
$obj->add_formatter($class)
$obj->add_formatter($obj) Add a formatter. The most recently added formatter will become the global one during initialization. If a formatter is added after initialization has occurred a warning will be generated:



    "Formatter $formatter loaded too late to be used as the global formatter"
