suspensions(-Susps)

Returns a list of all currently live (sleeping or scheduled) suspensions.
Susps
A variable.

Description

Suspensions in ECLiPSe go through several stages: They are created, attached to variables or symbolic triggers, later scheduled for execution, and finally executed.

suspension/1 returns a list of all currently live suspensions. They may be either sleeping or already scheduled for execution. It does not return any dead suspensions.

Note: If you are looking for one particular suspension, consider using current_suspension/1 instead.

Examples

    [eclipse 6]: suspend(writeln(a),3,X->inst),
                 suspend(writeln(b),5,Y->inst),
                 suspensions(S).

    X = X
    Y = Y
    S = ['SUSP-_358-susp', 'SUSP-_376-susp']

    Delayed goals:
            writeln(a)
            writeln(b)
