Class Uq_engines.map_engine


class [['a, 'b]] map_engine : map_done:('a -> 'b engine_state) -> ?map_error:exn -> 'b engine_state -> ?map_aborted:unit -> 'b engine_state -> ?propagate_working:bool -> 'a #engine -> ['b] engine
The map_engine observes the argument engine, and when the state changes to `Done, `Error, or `Aborted, the corresponding mapping function is called, and the resulting state becomes the state of the mapped engine.

After the state change to `Done, `Error, or `Aborted has been observed, the map engine detaches from the argument engine, and no further state changes are recognized.

The state `Working cannot be mapped to another state. It is an error to map final states to `Working. The result type of the map_* functions is engine_state and not final_state because of historic reasons.

If the mapped engine is aborted, this request will be forwarded to the argument engine.

If one of the mapping functions raises an exception, this causes a transiton to `Error.


map_done : Maps the `Done state of the argument engine to another state. The argument of map_done is the argument of the `Done state. Note that map_done is non-optional only because of typing. If it were optional, the type checker would infer 'a = 'b.
map_error : Maps the `Error state of the argument engine to another state. The argument of map_error is the argument of the `Error state.
map_aborted : Maps the `Aborted state of the argument engine to another state.
propagate_working : Specifies whether changes of the `Working state in the argument engine are propagated. Defaults to true. If set to false, the mapped engine remains in `Working 0 until it transitions to a final state.
