Detailed Description

This class can be used to populate a FOOTPRINT_LIST asynchronously.

Constructing one, calling .Start(), then waiting until it reports completion is equivalent to calling FOOTPRINT_LIST::ReadFootprintFiles().

204  m_list = nullptr;
205  }
206 }
virtual void StopWorkers()=0
Stop worker threads.
FOOTPRINT_LIST * m_list
bool FOOTPRINT_ASYNC_LOADER::Join ( )

Wait until the worker threads are finished, and then perform any required single-threaded finishing on the list.

This must be called before using the list, even if the completion callback was used!

It is safe to call this method from a thread, but it is not safe to use the list from ANY thread until it completes. It is recommended to call this from the main thread because of this.

It is safe to call this multiple times, but after the first it will always return true.

Returns
true if no errors occurred

FOOTPRINT_LIST * m_list
void FOOTPRINT_ASYNC_LOADER::SetList ( FOOTPRINT_LIST aList)

Assign a FOOTPRINT_LIST to the loader.

This does not take ownership of the list.

FOOTPRINT_LIST * m_list
void FOOTPRINT_ASYNC_LOADER::Start ( FP_LIB_TABLE aTable,

)

Launch the worker threads.

Parameters
aTabledefines all the libraries.
aNicknameis the library to read from, or if NULL means read all footprints from all known libraries in aTable.
aNThreadsis the number of worker threads.

Member Data Documentation

constexpr unsigned FOOTPRINT_ASYNC_LOADER::DEFAULT_THREADS = 6
static

Default number of worker threads.

Determined empirically (by dickelbeck): More than 6 is not significantly faster, less than 6 is likely slower.
