Efl.Net.Dialer.Simple (class)


Connects to a remote server offering an easy to use, buffered I/O.

The simple dialer is based on Efl.Net.Socket.Simple, which encapsulates an actual Efl.Net.Socket and uses it with an Efl.Io.Buffered_Stream. This creates an input Efl.Io.Queue, an output Efl.Io.Queue. Both of these are linked using a receiver and a sender Efl.Io.Copier.

The idea is that unlike the traditional Efl.Net.Socket which attempts to write directly to the socket and thus may take less data than requested, this one will keep the pending data in its own buffer, feeding it to the actual socket when Efl.Io.Writer.can_write occurs. This 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).

Reading is also much simpler since received 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, you can then just peek at its contents. If it's incomplete do nothing, if complete then 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 dialer is created using the class given as the constructor property Efl.Net.Dialer.Simple.inner_class and can be retrieved with Efl.Io.Buffered_Stream.inner_io. This should be used with care, like extra configuration before Efl.Net.Dialer.dial is called.

If your object class requires some constructor-only properties to be set prior to Efl.Object.finalize, then use Efl.Io.Buffered_Stream.inner_io directly providing an already created dialer.
