Thread Priority

Hi guys,

I’ve just noticed that something happened to Thread.priority… It
disappeared.
I’m talking about Thread’s instance attribute - priority. I’m using
the latest code from GitHub.

The only available priority in the Thread instance now is a CamelCase
priority, which is .Net’s Priority attribute…

Take a look at the next REPL session:
=> #<Thread:0x000005e aborting>

t = Thread.new { puts “Start”; sleep(30); puts “end” }
tart=>
#<Thread:0x0000060 run>

t.priority
:0: undefined method `priority’ for #<Thread:0x0000060 sleep>
(NoMethodError)

t.Priority
=> Normal

I remember the priority attribute was problematic because it didn’t
receive numeric values like MRI. Maybe this is related to that?

Thanks,
Shay.

Ruby Thread#priority is not implemented yet. We disabled name mangling
on built-ins recently so Thread.Priority property is not callable via
lower-case name anymore.

Is it going to be implemented for V1?
If yes, is it going to work as MRI with numeric values?

Thanks!
Shay.

Hello,

I have done a very basic implementation of a while back but I did not
finish
the modifications to the specs to test this.

Here are the commits if you want to grab it

http://github.com/PascalN2/ironruby/commit/3a0373379b79dbe7fff603ad61ab726d7
de7f305
http://github.com/PascalN2/ironruby/commit/47f0de87e908981f553732e97f948a33b
164f202

It was decided at some point that there would only be 5 valid values

-2, -1, 0, 1 and 2 … mapping to the CLR thread priorities
Lowest, BelowNormal, Normal, AboveNormal and Highest

If anything lower than -2 is passed in the thread will be assigned
Lowest
and Highest if above 2.

Quick +1 to vote this patch up.

I’ve been working on the JRuby support for the DataMapper ORM and
DataObjects(.rb) database connectivity layer. These projects rely in
turn on another project called Extlib, which provides a bunch of
useful extensions (lazy arrays, thread pools, string extensions) for
the other two projects.

I pulled down and built the latest IronRuby and running Extlib’s
specs, the lack of Thread#priority appears to be the first blocker in
our support for IR.

Extlib: http://github.com/datamapper/extlib

What’s the status of the DataMapper port? I was just trying to use it
but
couldn’t get the gem installed. I’m interested in helping get this
working.
What next steps are needed?

Thanks,

I remembered something like that. Thanks for pointing it out Pascal.

Is it going to be incorporated into V1 code?

Thanks!

I’m working on installing datamapper from the sources. However, I have
to
manually execute ir -S gem install .\pkg\_.gem each time after the gem
is
created. I’m getting this error:

Shouldn’t this both build the gem and execute gem install on the created
gem? Did I miss a step?

Thanks!
