Kamaelia docs : Kamaelia.Util.Stringify

Convert Data to Strings

Example Usage

Pipeline( sourceOfNonStrings(),

How does it work?

Send data items to this component's "inbox" inbox. They are converted to strings using the str(...) function, and sent on out of the "outbox" outbox.

Anything sent to this component's "control" inbox is ignored.

This component does not terminate.


class Stringify(Axon.Component.component)

Stringify() -> new Stringify.

A component that converts data items received on its "inbox" inbox to strings and sends them on out of its "outbox" outbox.
