[erlang-questions] Best way to do wall time alarms?
Wed Jan 24 07:30:06 CET 2007
Haven't had a change to investigate this and thought someone may have a
good idea as to the best approach. I'm after a way for a process to be
notified on the hour and then every quarter hour there after, eg, 00:00,
00:15, 00:30, 00:45, etc. The use of a quarter hour is just an example
and in the real application it will be configurable. The use of notify
hints at the use of gen_event as the receive or as an intermediary. The
question really then is what is the best way to generate these events?
Is there a standard approach, etc?
