final class MVar[F[_], A] extends cats.effect.concurrent.MVar[F, A]

A mutable location, that is either empty or contains a value of type A.

It has the following fundamental atomic operations:

  • put which fills the var if empty, or blocks (asynchronously) until the var is empty again
  • tryPut which fills the var if empty. returns true if successful
  • take which empties the var if full, returning the contained value, or blocks (asynchronously) otherwise until there is a value to pull
  • tryTake empties if full, returns None if empty.
  • read which reads the current value without touching it, assuming there is one, or otherwise it waits until a value is made available via put
  • tryRead returns Some(a) if full, without modifying the var, or else returns None
  • isEmpty returns true if currently empty

The MVar is appropriate for building synchronization primitives and performing simple inter-thread communications. If it helps, it's similar with a BlockingQueue(capacity = 1), except that it is pure and that doesn't block any threads, all waiting being done asynchronously.

Given its asynchronous, non-blocking nature, it can be used on top of Javascript as well.

N.B. this is a reimplementation of the interface exposed in Cats-Effect, see: cats.effect.concurrent.MVar

Inspired by Control.Concurrent.MVar from Haskell.
