Efl.Io.Buffered_Stream (class)


A wrapper object offering easy to use buffered streams over existing I/O class.

The buffered stream encapsulates an actual Efl.Io.Reader or Efl.Io.Writer, an input Efl.Io.Queue and an output Efl.Io.Queue. These are linked using a input and a output Efl.Io.Copier.

The idea is that unlike the traditional Efl.Io.Writer which will attempt to write directly and thus may take less data than requested, this one will keep the pending data in its own buffer, feeding to the actual output when Efl.Io.Writer can write. That makes its operation much simpler as Efl.Io.Writer.write will always take the full data -- allows "write and forget", if unlimited (see Efl.Io.Buffered_Stream.max_queue_size_output). When finished writing data Efl.Io.Buffered_Stream.eos_mark then waits for the "write.finished" event to know all data has been sent.

Reading is also much simpler since incoming data is kept in an Efl.Io.Queue, thus its size can be queried with Efl.Io.Buffered_Stream.pending_read and read with Efl.Io.Reader.read or peeked with Efl.Io.Buffered_Stream.slice, then discarded with Efl.Io.Buffered_Stream.discard or Efl.Io.Buffered_Stream.clear.

When waiting for a complete message, just peek at its contents, if not complete do nothing and wait. If complete then use either Efl.Io.Reader.read to get a copy or manipulate a read-only reference from Efl.Io.Buffered_Stream.slice and then Efl.Io.Buffered_Stream.discard.

The actual I/O is set with the constructor method Efl.Io.Buffered_Stream.inner_io.set and can be retrieved with Efl.Io.Buffered_Stream.inner_io.get, which should be used with care -- calling Efl.Io.Reader.read and Efl.Io.Writer.write on it may produce unexpected results.

An error has occurred and I/O has stopped


Both read and write are finished.


If Efl.Io.Buffered_Stream.line_delimiter is set, will be emitted with current line. The memory is only valid during event callback dispatched and should not be modified. Note that the line slice may not be inside Efl.Io.Buffered_Stream.slice.




Same as Efl.Io.Reader "eos", for consistency.


The read-slice returned by Efl.Io.Buffered_Stream.slice may have changed.


Efl.Io.Buffered_Stream.eos_mark was called and all available data was sent to destination


closed Notifies closed, when property is marked as true
can_read,changed Notifies can_read property changed.
eos Notifies end of stream, when property is marked as true.
can_write,changed Notifies can_write property changed.
callback,add A callback was added.
callback,del A callback was deleted.
del Object is being deleted.
destruct Object has been fully destroyed. It can not be used beyond this point. This event should only serve to clean up any dangling pointer.
