Crate mio [] [src]

A fast, low-level IO library for Rust focusing on non-blocking APIs, event notification, and other useful utilities for building high performance IO apps.

Goals

Usage

Using mio starts by creating a Poll, which reads events from the OS and put them into Events. You can handle IO events from the OS with it.

For more detail, see Poll.

Example

use mio::*;
use mio::tcp::{TcpListener, TcpStream};

// Setup some tokens to allow us to identify which event is
// for which socket.
const SERVER: Token = Token(0);
const CLIENT: Token = Token(1);

let addr = "127.0.0.1:13265".parse().unwrap();

// Setup the server socket
let server = TcpListener::bind(&addr).unwrap();

// Create a poll instance
let poll = Poll::new().unwrap();

// Start listening for incoming connections
poll.register(&server, SERVER, Ready::readable(),
              PollOpt::edge()).unwrap();

// Setup the client socket
let sock = TcpStream::connect(&addr).unwrap();

// Register the socket
poll.register(&sock, CLIENT, Ready::readable(),
              PollOpt::edge()).unwrap();

// Create storage for events
let mut events = Events::with_capacity(1024);

loop {
    poll.poll(&mut events, None).unwrap();

    for event in events.iter() {
        match event.token() {
            SERVER => {
                // Accept and drop the socket immediately, this will close
                // the socket and notify the client of the EOF.
                let _ = server.accept();
            }
            CLIENT => {
                // The server just shuts down the socket, let's just exit
                // from our event loop.
                return;
            }
            _ => unreachable!(),
        }
    }
}
