[][src]Struct riker::actor::ActorRef

pub struct ActorRef<Msg: Message> {
    pub uri: ActorUri,
    pub cell: ActorCell<Msg>,

An actor reference exposes methods to interact with its underlying actor.

All actor references are products of system.actor_of or context.actor_of. When an actor is created using actor_of an ActorRef is returned.

Actor references are lightweight and can be cloned without concern for memory use.

In the event that the underlying actor is terminated messages sent to the actor will be routed to dead letters.

If an actor is restarted all existing references continue to function.
