Kamaelia docs : Kamaelia.Util.ChunkNamer

Chunk Namer

A component that labels each message with a unique filename for that message. e.g. "A" ... "B" ... --> ["chunk1", "A"] ... ["chunk2", "B"] ...

Example Usage

Save each line entered to the console to a separate file:

    ChunkNamer("test", ".txt"),


class ChunkNamer(Axon.Component.component)

ChunkNamer() -> new ChunkNamer component.

Gives a filename to the chunk and sends it in the form [filename, contents], e.g. to a WholeFileWriter component.

Keyword arguments: -- basepath - the prefix to apply to the filename -- suffix - the suffix to apply to the filename


  • control : Shut me down
  • inbox : Chunks to be saved


  • outbox : List: [file name, file contents]
  • signal : signal when I've shut down

Methods defined here


You should be using the inbox/outbox interface, not these methods (except construction). This documentation is designed as a roadmap as to their functionalilty for maintainers and new component developers.
