Timer Sample v1.20

by Jouni Miettunen

timerTimers, love to hate. They look like they work – until they don’t. Bummer!

While furiously debugging Nixie Watch v1.10 last night, I did some memory leak debugging which possibly was or was not related to timers. Never found out, but I did discover two new ways how NOT to use timers. Also a work-around for the memory leak, but that’s not anything I really wish to write about…

Ten (10) documented timer problems (PyS60 1.4.x) how to do them , how to detect them and how to fix them. Check this out to avoid some old mistakes, use your time to do some new ones!

Hope this helps,
