Ticket #22 (new defect)
Opened 8 years ago
rhs of a::Event <|> b::Event push-lagging more than its lhs

...as exposed in http://moonpatio.com:8080/fastcgi/hpaste.fcgi/view?id=977 . That one depends on unreleased and discontinued ffi bindings to http://libagar, I can provide the source if necessary.
"more" meaning that even the lhs may lag occasionally, but rarely.
Those Events are produced and consumed by
type Sync :: Clock TimeT registerEvent :: Sync -> Object -> String -> (AgarEvent -> IO a) -> IO (Event a) registerEvent cl o s a = do (sink, src) <- makeEvent cl setEvent o s (\ev -> forkIO (a ev >>= sink) >> return ()) return src makeSink :: (a -> Action) -> Event a -> IO ThreadId makeSink a = forkIO . adaptE . fmap a
that is, event handlers spark threads to sink, and output is shoved into agar in another thread than the one running its event loop (that is sparking the threads).
