Intelligent File Reader
This component reads the filename specified at its creation and outputs it as several messages. When a certain number of messages in its outbox have not yet been delivered it will pause to reduce memory and CPU usage. To wake it, ideally Axon should unpause it when the outbox has less than a certain number of messages (i.e. when some are delivered) but for now you can send it an arbitrary message (to "inbox") which will wake the component.
IntelligentFileReader(filename, chunksize, maxqueue) -> file reading component
Creates a file reader component. Reads a chunk of chunksize bytes, using the Selector to avoid having to block, pausing when the length of its send-queue exceeds maxqueue chunks.
