This component accepts data from it's inbox "inbox" and appends the data to the end of the given file.
It takes four arguments, with these default values:
filename = None forwarder = True blat_file = False hold_open = True
filename should be clear. If you don't supply this, it'll break.
forwarder - this component defaults to passing on a copy of the data it's appending to the file. This makes this component useful for dropping in between other components for logging/debugging what's going on.
blat_file - if this is true, the file is zapped before we start appending data.
hold_open - This determines if the file is closed between instances of data arriving.
Appender() -> component that incrementally append data to the end of a file (think logging)
Uses the following keyword argyments:
* filename - File to append to (required) * forwarder - copy to outbox (default: True) * blat_file - write empty file (default: False) * hold_open - keep file open (default: True)
