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 OSCARProtocol(Axon.Component.component)

OSCARProtocol() -> new OSCARProtocol component.

Provides a Kamaelia interface to the lowest level of OSCAR protocol, the FLAP level.

For more information on FLAPs, see module level docs.



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


checks for data in all our boxes, and if there is data, then call the appropriate function to handle it.



receives data coming in through the wire, reformats it into a Python-friendly form, and retransmits it to its "heard" outbox.


checks that incoming messages from the "talk" inbox are in a (channel, flap data) tuple. If not, exceptions are raised. If so, OSCARProtocol.sendFLAP is called.


main loop

sendFLAP(self, data[, channel])

constructs FLAPs and sends them


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.
