Public Instance methods
add_listener(channel_name, listener_key=NOTHING) {|value| ...}

Adds the passed proc as a listener on the channel indicated by channel_name. listener_key is used to remove the listener later; if none is specified, the proc itself is used.

Whatever is used as the listener_key is returned, making it very easy to use the proc itself as the listener_key:

  listener = add_listener("Channel") { ... }

  remove_listener("Channel", listener)

remove_listener(channel_name, listener_key)

Removes the listener indicated by listener_key from the channel indicated by channel_name. Returns the registered proc, or nil if none was found.

notify_listeners(channel_name, *arguments)

Calls all the procs registered on the channel indicated by channel_name. If value is specified, it is passed in to the procs, otherwise they are called with no arguments.
