Keep in mind that when an ordinary listener function is called, the standard this keyword is intentionally set to reference the EventEmitter instance to which the listener is attached. It is possible to use ES6 Arrow Functions as listeners, however, when doing so, the this keyword will no longer reference the EventEmitter instance:.
The EventEmitter calls all listeners synchronously in the order in which they were registered. This ensures the proper sequencing of events and helps avoid race conditions and logic errors. When appropriate, listener functions can switch to an asynchronous mode of operation using the setImmediate or process. When a listener is registered using the eventEmitter. Using the eventEmitter. Once the event is emitted, the listener is unregistered and then called. When an error occurs within an EventEmitter instance, the typical action is for an 'error' event to be emitted.
These are treated as special cases within Node. If an EventEmitter does not have at least one listener registered for the 'error' event, and an 'error' event is emitted, the error is thrown, a stack trace is printed, and the Node.
To guard against crashing the Node. Note, however, that the domain module is deprecated. All EventEmitter s emit the event 'newListener' when new listeners are added and 'removeListener' when existing listeners are removed. The EventEmitter instance will emit its own 'newListener' event before a listener is added to its internal array of listeners. Listeners registered for the 'newListener' event will be passed the event name and a reference to the listener being added.
The fact that the event is triggered before adding the listener has a subtle but important side effect: any additional listeners registered to the same name within the 'newListener' callback will be inserted before the listener that is in the process of being added.
The Listeners. By Walter de La Mare. 'Is there anybody there?' said the Traveller,. Knocking on the moonlit door;. And his horse in the silence champed the. The Listeners" is narrative poem centering a traveler's encounter with the supernatural. It was first published in London in by Constable and Company in.
For listeners attached using. The 'removeListener' event is emitted after the listener is removed. A class method that returns the number of listeners for the given eventName registered on the given emitter. By default, a maximum of 10 listeners can be registered for any single event.

For listeners attached using. The 'removeListener' event is emitted after the listener is removed. A class method that returns the number of listeners for the given eventName registered on the given emitter. By default, a maximum of 10 listeners can be registered for any single event. This limit can be changed for individual EventEmitter instances using the emitter. To change the default for all EventEmitter instances, the EventEmitter.
If this value is not a positive number, a TypeError will be thrown. Take caution when setting the EventEmitter. However, calling emitter. This is not a hard limit.
The EventEmitter instance will allow more listeners to be added but will output a trace warning to stderr indicating that a "possible EventEmitter memory leak" has been detected. For any single EventEmitter , the emitter. The --trace-warnings command line flag can be used to display the stack trace for such warnings.
The emitted warning can be inspected with process. Its name property is set to 'MaxListenersExceededWarning'. Synchronously calls each of the listeners registered for the event named eventName , in the order they were registered, passing the supplied arguments to each.
Returns an array listing the events for which the emitter has registered listeners. The values in the array will be strings or Symbol s. Returns the current max listener value for the EventEmitter which is either set by emitter. Alias for emitter. Adds the listener function to the end of the listeners array for the event named eventName. No checks are made to see if the listener has already been added. Multiple calls passing the same combination of eventName and listener will result in the listener being added, and called, multiple times.
By default, event listeners are invoked in the order they are added. The emitter. Adds a one-time listener function for the event named eventName. More Details Original Title. Other Editions 4.

The cloth cover with the imprint and the uncut pages. The not-quite-full-sized-hardcover size. And the font!
Styled yet familiar and readable. I am certain that the packaging was the only reason I finished this book. Other than that, this book lacks. The writing was overly deliberate and MFA-y styled in a way that was at first distracting and then became unpleasant. There was weird pacing Meh. There was weird pacing in which mostly nothing happens, and then an important revelation occurs but is subsequently ignored and unexplored, and then nothing happens again. Also, none of the characters really made sense, save for maybe one the little brother. View 1 comment.
Jul 22, Caroljean rated it liked it. I would love, love, love to give this more stars. I feel ripped up about it. I love the language here, it makes everything unfamiliar, and wonderful, the strange world building vocabulary of children, of course it calls attention to itself and I thought it was amazing and enchanting. However it didn't all add up for me. Quinn's tragedies. It was like stepping into a fog, seeing glimpses at a time, fitting those images together, performing math with them, and understanding in the end what al I would love, love, love to give this more stars.
It was like stepping into a fog, seeing glimpses at a time, fitting those images together, performing math with them, and understanding in the end what all these people had gone through, but Everything was just revealed, slowly, artfully, meticulously, but in the course of the story nothing changed, the fog was lifted, and that was it. We were in the same place with the same people, who would continue forever the same.
It was lovely so many times, made me cry in the end, but in the end I just can't review it higher when it seemed so much to be just a doling out of information the characters know the whole time. First novel though, so still impressed, and I will definitely check out her short fiction and any other novels.
May 13, Rebecca rated it really liked it. I read this book because Powell's told me to, and I resisted at first. Nothing new.
But then, I found this book to be profoundly multi-layered. You could review the words, follow a plot, and figure out what happened. But if you were willing to follow the naming of things, you could strike a deeper sound in the book. And then, one more layer down, the I read this book because Powell's told me to, and I resisted at first. And then, one more layer down, there was a double meaning in the namings that led you to a level of impressive careful stitching. If this book were only the plot, I would not recommend it.
