Retry execution of the current memory transaction because it has seen values in TVars which mean that it should not continue (e.g. the TVars represent a shared buffer that is now empty). The implementation may block the thread until one of the TVars that it has read from has been udpated. (GHC only)
This package exposes combinators that can wrap arbitrary monadic actions. They run the action and potentially retry running it with some configurable delay for a configurable number of times. The purpose is to make it easier to work with IO and especially network IO actions that often experience temporary failure and warrant retrying of the original action. For example, a database query may time out for a while, in which case we should hang back for a bit and retry the query instead of simply raising an exception.
Throw an IOError corresponding to the current socket error if the IO action returns a result of -1, but retries in case of an interrupted operation.
Throw an IOError corresponding to the current socket error if the IO action returns a result of -1, but retries in case of an interrupted operation. Checks for operations that would block and executes an alternative action before retrying in that case.
