[erlang-questions] Question on "selective receive"
Sun Jan 19 23:57:16 CET 2014
You are talking about the 'after' clause of a receive expression. It can
only have integers as clauses, starting from 0 to infinity, and a special
value 'infinity' literally, which is the default.
So it cannot fail, these are not guards, it is just a time in
milliseconds, and the receive expression value is the 'after' clause value
if no pattern of the receive clause is satisfied in the duration.
(sorry for bad englih, i hope this is readable ;) )
