ost::TTYStream(3) Library Functions Manual ost::TTYStream(3)

NAME

ost::TTYStream - TTY streams are used to represent serial connections that are fully 'streamable' objects using C++ stream classes and friends.

SYNOPSIS

#include <serial.h>

Inherits streambuf, ost::Serial, and iostream.

Inherited by ost::TTYSession, and ost::ttystream.

Detailed Description

TTY streams are used to represent serial connections that are fully 'streamable' objects using C++ stream classes and friends.

The first application relevant serial I/O class is the TTYStream class. TTYStream offers a linearly buffered 'streaming' I/O session with the serial device. Furthermore, traditional C++ 'stream' operators (<< and >>) may be used with the serial device. A more 'true' to ANSI C++ library format 'ttystream' is also available, and this supports an 'open' method in which one can pass initial serial device parameters immediately following the device name in a single string, as in '/dev/tty3a:9600,7,e,1', as an example.

The TTYSession aggragates a TTYStream and a Common C++ Thread which is assumed to be the execution context that will be used to perform actual I/O operations. This class is very anagolous to TCPSession.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

ost::TTYStream::TTYStream () [protected]

This constructor is used to derive 'ttystream', a more C++ style version of the TTYStream class.

ost::TTYStream::TTYStream (const char * filename, timeout_t to = 0)

Create and open a tty serial port.

Parameters

filename char name of device to open.
to default timeout.

virtual ost::TTYStream::~TTYStream () [virtual]

End the tty stream and cleanup.

Member Function Documentation

void ost::TTYStream::allocate (void) [protected]

Used to allocate the buffer space needed for iostream operations. This is based on MAX_INPUT.

void ost::TTYStream::endStream (void) [protected]

Used to terminate the buffer space and clean up the tty connection. This function is called by the destructor.

void ost::TTYStream::interactive (bool flag)

Set tty mode to buffered or 'interactive'. When interactive, all streamed I/O is directly sent to the serial port immediately.

Parameters

flag bool set to true to make interactive.

bool ost::TTYStream::isPending (Pending pend, timeout_t timeout = TIMEOUT_INF) [virtual]

Get the status of pending operations. This can be used to examine if input or output is waiting, or if an error has occured on the serial device. If read buffer contains data then input is ready and if write buffer contains data it is first flushed then checked.

Returns

true if ready, false if timeout.

Parameters

pend ready check to perform.
timeout in milliseconds.

Reimplemented from ost::Serial.

int ost::TTYStream::overflow (int ch) [protected]

This streambuf method is used to write the output buffer through the established tty port.

Parameters

ch char to push through.

Returns

char pushed through.

void ost::TTYStream::setTimeout (timeout_t to) [inline]

Set the timeout control.

Parameters

to timeout to use.

int ost::TTYStream::sync (void)

Flushes the stream input and out buffers, writes pending output.

Returns

0 on success.

int ost::TTYStream::uflow (void) [protected]

This streambuf method is used for doing unbuffered reads through the establish tty serial port when in interactive mode. Also this method will handle proper use of buffers if not in interative mode.

Returns

char from tty serial port, EOF also possible.

int ost::TTYStream::underflow (void) [protected]

This streambuf method is used to load the input buffer through the established tty serial port.

Returns

char from get buffer, EOF also possible.
