<?php
$worker 
= new Worker();

echo 
"There are currently {$worker->collect()} tasks on the stack to be collected\n";

for (
$i 0$i 15; ++$i) {
    
$worker->stack(new class extends Threaded {});
}

echo 
"There are {$worker->collect()} tasks remaining on the stack to be collected\n";

$worker->start();

while (
$worker->collect()); // blocks until all tasks have finished executing

echo "There are now {$worker->collect()} tasks on the stack to be collected\n";

$worker->shutdown();

The above example will output:

There are currently 0 tasks on the stack to be collected
There are 15 tasks remaining on the stack to be collected
There are now 0 tasks on the stack to be collected
