EvEmbed::__constructConstructs the EvEmbed object


public EvEmbed::__construct ( object $other [, callable $callback [, mixed $data [, int $priority ]]] )

This is a rather advanced watcher type that lets to embed one event loop into another(currently only IO events are supported in the embedded loop, other types of watchers might be handled in a delayed or incorrect fashion and must not be used).

See » the libev documentation for details.

This watcher is most useful on BSD systems without working kqueue to still be able to handle a large number of sockets. See example below.



Instance of EvLoop . The loop to embed, this loop must be embeddable(see Ev::embeddableBackends() ).


See Watcher callbacks .


Custom data associated with the watcher.


Watcher priority

Return Values

Returns EvEmbed object on success.


Example #1 Embedding loop created with kqueue backend into the default loop

 * Check if kqueue is available but not recommended and create a kqueue backend
 * for use with sockets (which usually work with any kqueue implementation).
 * Store the kqueue/socket-only event loop in loop_socket. (One might optionally
 * use EVFLAG_NOENV, too)
 * Example borrowed from
 * http://pod.tst.eu/http://cvs.schmorp.de/libev/ev.pod#Examples_CONTENT-9
$loop        EvLoop::defaultLoop();
$socket_loop NULL;
$embed       NULL;

if (
Ev::supportedBackends() & ~Ev::recommendedBackends() & Ev::BACKEND_KQUEUE) {
    if ((
$socket_loop = new EvLoop(Ev::BACKEND_KQUEUE))) {
$embed = new EvEmbed($loop);

if (!
$socket_loop) {
$socket_loop $loop;

// Now use $socket_loop for all sockets, and $loop for anything else
