Part of twisted.internet.posixbase View Source View In Hierarchy

Known subclasses: twisted.internet.posixbase._SIGCHLDWaker, twisted.internet.posixbase._UnixWaker

The self-pipe trick<http://cr.yp.to/docs/selfpipe.html>, used to wake up the main loop from another thread or a signal handler.

_FDWaker is a base class for waker implementations based on writing to a pipe being monitored by the reactor.
Instance VariablesoThe file descriptor for the end of the pipe which can be written to to wake up a reactor monitoring this waker.
iThe file descriptor which should be monitored in order to be awoken by this waker.
Method __init__ Initialize.
Method doRead Read some bytes from the pipe and discard them.
Method connectionLost Close both ends of my pipe.

Inherited from Logger:
