Feature #8919

Queue as embedded class

Added by Koichi Sasada almost 2 years ago. Updated 8 months ago.

Assignee:Koichi Sasada


Queue class in lib/thread.rb (ext/thread/thread.c from Ruby 2.1) is easy and safe way to communicate between threads.

How about to include Queue class as embedded class to elaborate using Queue?

This proposal is not include ConditionVariable and SizedQueue.

Now, thread.rb is required from rubygems.

$ ./ruby -ve 'p Queue'
ruby 2.2.0dev (2014-11-20 trunk 48507) [x86_64-linux]


$ ./ruby --disable-gems -ve 'p Queue'
ruby 2.2.0dev (2014-11-20 trunk 48507) [x86_64-linux]
-e:1:in `<main>': uninitialized constant Queue (NameError)

What should we do?

#7 Updated by Nobuyoshi Nakada 8 months ago

By adding a line thread to ext/Setup file, thread.so can be statically linked to ruby (or libruby) now.
