Dispatch methods to be run in threads.Internally, this should use a thread pool and dispatch methods to them.
|Method||callInThread||Run the callable object in a separate thread.|
|Method||callFromThread||Cause a function to be executed by the reactor thread.|
|Method||suggestThreadPoolSize||Suggest the size of the internal threadpool used to dispatch functions
Cause a function to be executed by the reactor thread.
Use this method when you want to run a function in the reactor's thread from another thread. Calling callFromThread should wake up the main thread (where reactor.run() is executing) and run the given callable in that thread.Obviously, the callable must be thread safe. (If you want to call a function in the next mainloop iteration, but you're in the same thread, use callLater with a delay of 0.)
