method wait

Documentation for method wait assembled from the following types:

class Supply

From Supply

(Supply) method wait

method wait(Supply:D:)

Taps the Supply it is called on, and blocks execution until the either the supply is done (in which case it evaluates to the final value that was emitted on the Supply, or Nil if not value was emitted) or quit (in which case it will throw the exception that was passed to quit).

my $s =;
start {
  sleep 1;
  say "One second: running.";
  sleep 1;
say "Two seconds: done";

class Lock::ConditionVariable

From Lock::ConditionVariable

(Lock::ConditionVariable) method wait

Defined as:

multi method wait--> Nil )
multi method wait&predicate --> Nil )

Without any predicate, it waits on the condition variable itself; with a predicate, waits until the code returns a truish value.

    my $times = 100;
    my $tried;
    my $failed;
    for ^$times {
        my $l =;
        my $c = $l.condition;
        my $now1;
        my $now2;
        my $counter = 0;
        my $t1 = Thread.start({
                $c.wait{ $counter != 0 } );
                $now1 = now;
        my $t2 = Thread.start({
        $now2 = now;
        last if $failed = ( !$now1.defined or $now1 > $now2 );

The condition we obtain from the $l lock is awaited using a predicate, in this case, check if the counter is still zero. When it takes another value, the program flow continues in the next instruction.
