Event timer

Used to be part of CCFuture
Since 0.16

type t 
A scheduler for events. It runs in its own thread.
val create : unit -> t
A new timer.
val set_exn_handler : t -> (exn -> unit) -> unit
set_exn_handler timer f registers f so that any exception raised by a task scheduled in timer is given to f
exception Stopped
val after : t -> float -> f:(unit -> 'a) -> unit
Call the callback f after the given number of seconds.
Raises Stopped if the timer was stopped
val at : t -> float -> f:(unit -> 'a) -> unit
Create a future that evaluates to () at the given Unix timestamp
Raises Stopped if the timer was stopped
exception ExitEvery
val every : ?delay:float -> t -> float -> f:(unit -> 'a) -> unit
every timer n ~f calls f () every n seconds. f() can raise ExitEvery to stop the cycle.
Raises Stopped if the timer was stopped
delay : if provided, the first call to f () is delayed by that many seconds.
val stop : t -> unit
Stop the given timer, cancelling pending tasks. Idempotent. From now on, calling most other operations on the timer will raise Stopped.
val active : t -> bool
Returns true until stop t has been called.
