Function Queue ==============

In-memory, error handling (retry) function queue, with the ability to throttle simultaneous executions.

Build Status It is the distillate of node-filewalker


``npm install fqueue``


Please have a look at the examples. Class FunctionQueue ------------------- Inherits from events.EventEmitter


``scope`` (default: this) ``maxPending`` (default: -1) Maximum asynchronous jobs. Useful to throttle the number of simultaneous disk-operations. ``maxAttempts`` (default: 3) Maximum reattempts on error. Set to 0 to disable reattempts. Set to -1 for infinite reattempts. ``attemptTimeout`` (default: 5000 ms) Minimum time to wait before reattempt. In milliseconds. Useful to let network-drives remount, etc.


.scope .maxPending .maxAttempts .attemptTimeout .running .paused .pending .dequeued .warnings .errors .attempts .queue


this ``.start(func, args [, scope [, timeout]])`` Starts the function-queue. this ``.enqueue(func, args [, scope [, timeout]])`` Enqueues a function for later execution. this ``.done()`` Tell the function-queue that the function has done execution. this ``.error(err, func, args [, scope [, maxAttempts [, timeout]]])`` Tell the function-queue about an error. This either initiates an reattempt or emits the 'error' event. Notice: You need to call ``.done()`` even if the function called ``.error([..])``.

General Methods

boolean ``.isEmpty()`` Returns ``true` if the queue is empty, otherwise `false`` this ``.pause()`` Pauses the execution of functions. Emits the 'pause' event after all pending functions completed. this ``.resume()`` Resumes the previously paused execution of functions. Immediately emits the 'resume' event.
