Simulating wait loops

How to use a loop, for you might want to make an IRC client :)

I had trouble finding this out, so here it is. If you want to manage a network connection (i.e. an IRC connection) you need a while (1) {} loop.

This cannot be done in PHP-GTK, because of the gtk::main() function. So, there is the gtk::timeout_add($time, $function) that executes a function every $time milliseconds. This solves our problem.

Important

Your function must return TRUE else it will not be called again. Return FALSE to cancel the timeout.

A landmark in PHP-GTK life

Andrei Zmievski, creator and lead coder of the PHP-GTK project, posted a long "letter to the community" today, which is poised to mark a turning point in the history of the project, after a long period of stagnation.

It is available on archive of the php-gtk-general mailing list, for instance on the MARC Archive.
