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 SimpleReader(Axon.Component.component)

SimpleReader(filename[,mode][,buffering]) -> simple file reader

Creates a "SimpleReader" component.




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, **argd)

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


Main loop Simply opens the file, loops through it (using "for"), sending data to "outbox". If the recipient has a maximum pipewidth it handles that eventuallity resending by pausing and waiting for the recipient to be able to recieve.

Shutsdown on shutdownMicroprocess.


Returns True if a shutdownMicroprocess message is received.

Also passes the message on out of the "signal" outbox.


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.
