Not really. But I have knocked up a first version that works - 19560
refers. The only I am not sure about yet is the fact that publish
function uses gen_server:cast/2 under the covers, making it difficult
to on this invocation. My first thought was to keep the cast/2
invocation as it is and just send out {pause,resume} atoms to a
registered flow control handler, but this means more code on the
client side. I suppose you could add a convenience function to
encapsulate the blocking receive when you're in the pause state, but
there may be a simpler way to do this. Have a look at the code
yourself and maybe you have an idea.
