int Ns_ScheduleWeekly( Ns_SchedProc *proc, void *context, int flags, int day, int hour, int minute, Ns_SchedProc *cleanup );
The Ns_ScheduleWeekly function schedules the procedure (
proc) to be run once a week on the specified day (
day) at the specified time (
proc procedure is the scheduled procedure that will be run once a week. It is a function that takes the context and id of the schedule procedure. The
id can be used in the Ns_UnscheduleProc procedure to stop the procedure from being called again.
typedef void (Ns_SchedProc) (void *context, int id);
context is the context to pass to the scheduled procedure.
The possible flags are NS_SCHED_ONCE and NS_SCHED_THREAD. If you specify NS_SCHED_ONCE, the procedure will only be executed once on the specified day and time, and it will not be re-scheduled to execute again the next week. By default, the procedure is re-scheduled after every time it is executed.
If you specify NS_SCHED_THREAD, the procedure will run detached in a separate thread instead of using the one scheduled procedure thread used by all other scheduled procedures. You should use NS_SCHED_THREAD if the procedure will not return immediately. Note that if you use NS_SCHED_THREAD, and the procedure is still active the next time to run occurs, the next run is skipped instead of just delayed.
day can be an integer from 0 to 6, where 0 represents Sunday. The
hour can be an integer from 0 to 23, and the
minute an integer from 0 to 59.
cleanup procedure will be run once when the
proc procedure is unscheduled.
