Member Functions

Name

Description

get_io_service

Get the io_service associated with the work.

work

Constructor notifies the io_service that work is starting.

Copy constructor notifies the io_service that work is starting.

~work

Destructor notifies the io_service that the work is complete.

The work class is used to inform the io_service when work starts and finishes. This ensures that the io_service object's run() function will not exit while work is underway, and that it does exit when there is no unfinished work remaining.

The work class is copy-constructible so that it may be used as a data member in a handler class. It is not assignable.

Requirements
