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.


x.__init__(...) initializes x; see x.__class__.__doc__ for signature

createsink(self, sink[, sinkbox][, passthrough])

Set up a new destination for data.

Creates an outbox, links it to the target (component,inbox) and records it in self.outlist.

deletesink(self, oldsink)

Removes the specified (component, inbox) as a destination for data where (component, inbox) = (oldsink.sink, oldsink.sinkbox).

Unlinks the target, destroys the corresponding outbox, and removes the corresponding record from self.outlist.


Main loop body.
