April 2024 - This site, and Kamaelia are being updated. There is significant work needed, and PRs are welcome.


For examples and more explanations, see the module level docs.

class IntelligentFileReader(Axon.Component.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.



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.

__init__(self, filename[, chunksize][, maxqueue])

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

debug(self, msg)


Main loop

makeNonBlocking(self, fd)

openFile(self, filename)

selectorWait(self, fd)

tryReadChunk(self, fd)


Got a problem with the documentation? Something unclear that could be clearer? Want to help improve it? Constructive criticism is very welcome - especially if you can suggest a better rewording!

Please leave you feedback here in reply to the documentation thread in the Kamaelia blog.
