I had one more question about the lifetime of the FSM. When does the state
machine die? I was expecting that the state machine has to be explicitly
killed (similar to fsm's start() method). But from whatever I have figured
out, I think the state machine dies if it is in a state and no event occurs.
If that is true, what will be an elegant way to "wait" inside a state till
some event occurs (i.e. keeping FSM alive)?
I came up with 2 ways:
1. Have following transition from the waiting state:
Row < state_waiting , none, state_waiting , none, none>
and keep on calling process_event(none())
This however causes the entering the state again and again and gives me
segmentation fault ultimately.
2. Have following transition:
Row < state_waiting, none, state_waiting, none, Gc_always_false>
where guard condition Gc_always_false returns false, prohibiting the
transition but still keeping the state machine alive.
Can you please tell me if the 2nd option is correct and if there is a better
way to sit idle in one state and keep the machine alive.
