// OneShotTimer and RepeatingTimer provide a simple timer API.  As the names
// suggest, OneShotTimer calls you back once after a time delay expires.
// RepeatingTimer on the other hand calls you back periodically with the
// prescribed time interval.
//
// OneShotTimer and RepeatingTimer both cancel the timer when they go out of
// scope, which makes it easy to ensure that you do not get called when your
// object has gone out of scope.  Just instantiate a OneShotTimer or
// RepeatingTimer as a member variable of the class for which you wish to
// receive timer events.
//
// Sample RepeatingTimer usage:
//
//   class MyClass {
//    public:
//     void StartDoingStuff() {
//       timer_.Start(TimeDelta::FromSeconds(1), this, &MyClass::DoStuff);
//     }
//     void StopDoingStuff() {
//       timer_.Stop();
//     }
//    private:
//     void DoStuff() {
//       // This method is called every second to do stuff.
//       ...
//     }
//     base::RepeatingTimer<MyClass> timer_;
//   };
//
// Both OneShotTimer and RepeatingTimer also support a Reset method, which
// allows you to easily defer the timer event until the timer delay passes once
// again.  So, in the above example, if 0.5 seconds have already passed,
// calling Reset on timer_ would postpone DoStuff by another 1 second.  In
// other words, Reset is shorthand for calling Stop and then Start again with
// the same arguments.

// IMPORTANT: If you change timer code, make sure that all tests (including
// disabled ones) from timer_unittests.cc pass locally. Some are disabled
// because they're flaky on the buildbot, but when you run them locally you
// should be able to tell the difference.
