Advanced Gtk+ Sequencer comes with an AgsThread object. It is organized as a tree structure. The API provides many functions to work with it. These threads do the ::clock event where all threads synchronize.
The AgsTaskLauncher runs synchronized as well but is going to be waited after syncing to run all tasks. The AgsTask signal ::launch runs asynchronous exclusively. Every thread tree shall have at toplevel a thread implementing AgsMainLoop interface.
There is an object call AgsThreadPool serving prelaunched threads. It returns on pull AgsReturnableThread instances. They can be used with a callback ::safe-run.
There is a interface to implement by your application context. Thus the AgsConcurrencyProvider interface is used. It has some common get/set functions to do basic multi-threaded work by well defined objects.
AgsMainLoop should be implemented by toplevel threads. Within a thread tree this is the topmost element. It has various get and set methods you would expect.
To control the AgsThread::clock signal AgsMainLoop's methods are going to be invoked. The involved functions are:
As it shall be implemented by AGS_TYPE_THREAD subtypes, this parent object provides a mutex to properly lock the object. You should obtain the GRecMutex pointer by accessing its field:
#include <glib.h> #include <glib-object.h> #include <ags/libags.h> AgsThread *thread; GRecMutex *thread_mutex; thread = ags_thread_new(NULL); /* get object mutex */ thread_mutex = AGS_THREAD_GET_OBJ_MUTEX(thread);
