Detailed Description

Minimal requirements for an efficient Writer.

Some protocols require knowing the size of a message up front. In general, that requires generating the message before sending it, but a user could do something more clever. The SizedWriter class is referenced by the library instead of BufferedConnectionWriter specifically to leave that possibility open.

◆ startWrite()

virtual void yarp::os::SizedWriter::startWrite ( ) const
pure virtual

Call when writing is about to begin.

Implemented in yarp::os::impl::BufferedConnectionWriter.

◆ stopWrite()

virtual void yarp::os::SizedWriter::stopWrite ( ) const
pure virtual

Call when all writing is finished.

Implemented in yarp::os::impl::BufferedConnectionWriter.

◆ write() [1/2]

void yarp::os::SizedWriter::write ( OutputStream os)
virtual

Reimplemented in yarp::os::impl::BufferedConnectionWriter.

Definition at line 19 of file SizedWriter.cpp.

◆ write() [2/2]

bool yarp::os::SizedWriter::write ( ConnectionWriter writer) const
overridevirtual

Write this object to a network connection.

Override this for your particular class. Be aware that depending on the nature of the connections a port has, and what protocol they use, and how efficient the YARP implementation is, this method may be called once, twice, or many times, as the result of a single call to Port::write

Parameters
writeran interface to the network connection for writing
Returns
true iff the object is successfully written

Implements yarp::os::PortWriter.
