in order to port some old OpenVms Fortran code I need to create some function to emulate the SYS$SETIMR and its ATS routine callback feature.
To do that I've found that the use of CreateTimerQueueTimer function of the kernel32 should be ok, but unfortunatly this function is not inside the ifwinty.f90. I've try to create the interface myself but I do not figure out how the do for the type WAITORTIMERCALLBACK.
So I'm looking of some working sample in fortran of using CreateTimerQueueTimer to set a timer and when timer trig, it's execute the function that it(s pass as parameter.
Can't help with CreateTimerQueueTimer().
However, if you have a Win32 program, you can accomplish this (ie, have Windows do something at a specified future time offset) by setting a windows timer which will send a message to a proc function in your code, ie,
! kernalUpdateTime in milliseconds globalTimer = SetTimer (ghwndMain, 0, kernalUpdateTime, LOC(KernalTimerProc)) ! ! Timer callback function for communications kernal. This subroutine ! is called by the communications kernal timer. ! SUBROUTINE KernalTimerProc (hwnd, uMsg, idEvent, dwTime) !DEC$ ATTRIBUTES DEFAULT :: KernalTimerProc !DEC$ IF DEFINED(_X86_) !DEC$ ATTRIBUTES STDCALL, ALIAS : '_KernalTimerProc@0' :: KernalTimerProc !DEC$ ELSE !DEC$ ATTRIBUTES STDCALL, ALIAS : 'KernalTimerProc' :: KernalTimerProc !DEC$ ENDIF IMPLICIT NONE INTEGER(HANDLE), INTENT(IN) :: hwnd INTEGER, INTENT(IN) :: uMsg INTEGER, INTENT(IN) :: idEvent INTEGER(DWORD), INTENT(IN) :: dwTime ... ! and when your program ends, be sure to release the system resources rval = KillTimer (ghwndMain, globalTimer)
