.IX Subsection "SUMMARY OF GENERIC WATCHER FUNCTIONS"
In the following description, \f(CW\*(C`TYPE\*(C'\fR stands for the watcher type,
e.g. \f(CW\*(C`timer\*(C'\fR for \f(CW\*(C`ev_timer\*(C'\fR watchers and \f(CW\*(C`io\*(C'\fR for \f(CW\*(C`ev_io\*(C'\fR watchers.
.ie n .IP """ev_init"" (ev_TYPE *watcher, callback)" 4
.el .IP "\f(CWev_init\fR (ev_TYPE *watcher, callback)" 4
.IX Item "ev_init (ev_TYPE *watcher, callback)"
This macro initialises the generic portion of a watcher. The contents
of the watcher object can be arbitrary (so \f(CW\*(C`malloc\*(C'\fR will do). Only
the generic parts of the watcher are initialised, you \fIneed\fR to call
the type-specific \f(CW\*(C`ev_TYPE_set\*(C'\fR macro afterwards to initialise the
type-specific parts. For each type there is also a \f(CW\*(C`ev_TYPE_init\*(C'\fR macro
which rolls both calls into one.
.Sp
You can reinitialise a watcher at any time as long as it has been stopped
(or never started) and there are no pending events outstanding.
.Sp
The callbakc is always of type \f(CW\*(C`void (*)(ev_loop *loop, ev_TYPE *watcher,
int revents)\*(C'\fR.
.ie n .IP """ev_TYPE_set"" (ev_TYPE *, [args])" 4
.el .IP "\f(CWev_TYPE_set\fR (ev_TYPE *, [args])" 4
.IX Item "ev_TYPE_set (ev_TYPE *, [args])"
This macro initialises the type-specific parts of a watcher. You need to
call \f(CW\*(C`ev_init\*(C'\fR at least once before you call this macro, but you can
call \f(CW\*(C`ev_TYPE_set\*(C'\fR any number of times. You must not, however, call this
macro on a watcher that is active (it can be pending, however, which is a
difference to the \f(CW\*(C`ev_init\*(C'\fR macro).
.Sp
Although some watcher types do not have type-specific arguments
(e.g. \f(CW\*(C`ev_prepare\*(C'\fR) you still need to call its \f(CW\*(C`set\*(C'\fR macro.
.ie n .IP """ev_TYPE_init"" (ev_TYPE *watcher, callback, [args])" 4
.el .IP "\f(CWev_TYPE_init\fR (ev_TYPE *watcher, callback, [args])" 4
.IX Item "ev_TYPE_init (ev_TYPE *watcher, callback, [args])"
This convinience macro rolls both \f(CW\*(C`ev_init\*(C'\fR and \f(CW\*(C`ev_TYPE_set\*(C'\fR macro
calls into a single call. This is the most convinient method to initialise
a watcher. The same limitations apply, of course.
.ie n .IP """ev_TYPE_start"" (loop *, ev_TYPE *watcher)" 4
.el .IP "\f(CWev_TYPE_start\fR (loop *, ev_TYPE *watcher)" 4
.IX Item "ev_TYPE_start (loop *, ev_TYPE *watcher)"
Starts (activates) the given watcher. Only active watchers will receive
events. If the watcher is already active nothing will happen.
.ie n .IP """ev_TYPE_stop"" (loop *, ev_TYPE *watcher)" 4
.el .IP "\f(CWev_TYPE_stop\fR (loop *, ev_TYPE *watcher)" 4
.IX Item "ev_TYPE_stop (loop *, ev_TYPE *watcher)"
Stops the given watcher again (if active) and clears the pending
status. It is possible that stopped watchers are pending (for example,
non-repeating timers are being stopped when they become pending), but
\&\f(CW\*(C`ev_TYPE_stop\*(C'\fR ensures that the watcher is neither active nor pending. If
you want to free or reuse the memory used by the watcher it is therefore a
good idea to always call its \f(CW\*(C`ev_TYPE_stop\*(C'\fR function.
.IP "bool ev_is_active (ev_TYPE *watcher)" 4
.IX Item "bool ev_is_active (ev_TYPE *watcher)"
Returns a true value iff the watcher is active (i.e. it has been started
and not yet been stopped). As long as a watcher is active you must not modify
it.
.IP "bool ev_is_pending (ev_TYPE *watcher)" 4
.IX Item "bool ev_is_pending (ev_TYPE *watcher)"
Returns a true value iff the watcher is pending, (i.e. it has outstanding
events but its callback has not yet been invoked). As long as a watcher
is pending (but not active) you must not call an init function on it (but
\&\f(CW\*(C`ev_TYPE_set\*(C'\fR is safe) and you must make sure the watcher is available to
libev (e.g. you cnanot \f(CW\*(C`free ()\*(C'\fR it).
.IP "callback = ev_cb (ev_TYPE *watcher)" 4
.IX Item "callback = ev_cb (ev_TYPE *watcher)"
Returns the callback currently set on the watcher.
.IP "ev_cb_set (ev_TYPE *watcher, callback)" 4

Change the callback. You can change the callback at virtually any time

there might be events pending in the embedded loop. The callback must then
call \f(CW\*(C`ev_embed_sweep (mainloop, watcher)\*(C'\fR to make a single sweep and invoke
their callbacks (you could also start an idle watcher to give the embedded
loop strictly lower priority for example). You can also set the callback
