[zeromq-dev] How to cancel a timer in zloop

Hi Pieter,

After looking into the source, I find there is no easy way to add support for removing a timer without breaking current API. A reader is associated with a socket, so we can unregistered reader by calling zloop_cancel (zloop_t *self, void *socket) with a specific socket as parameter. But for a timer, when created and registered in a zloop, there is no handle or something similar returned by any API calls. So my attempt to patch it by adding a similar API like zloop_cancel_timer failed.

Any ideas to maintain compatibility?

Kind regards,

- Bo
