Order preserving array-like channel. Used to execute functions in parallel with concurrency and stream-like functionality. Think
async.queue, but streaming!
var parchan =
or concatenate them all with:
var results = chvar string = results
This is very similar to other libraries like batch except:
- You can push functions and pull data while the callbacks are in progress
- You don't have to wait until all the callbacks are finished for you to start reading data
- You don't have to wait until you define all or even any callbacks to begin reading
- Data will always be returned in the correct order
The general use-case is concatenating files (as the example above).
concurrency- maximum number of concurrent callbacks
discard- discard the results of the callbacks. Will only return errors, if any, if
open- by default, the channel is closed, meaning
yield* ch.flush()will flush only the remaining callbacks. If opened,
yield* ch.flush()will not yield until the channel is closed.
Push a thunk to the channel.
Pull the next value in the channel. This waits for the next result in the channel indefinitely whether or not the channel is closed.
If an error was thrown, this function will throw that error, and no more additional callbacks will be executed. To continue executing callbacks, just
this.out === true, errors will be thrown in the correct order. Otherwise, errors will be thrown ASAP.
Waits until all the pending callbacks are completed. Unless you are discarding data, all the results of the callbacks will be returned as
Number of results waiting to be read.
If you can
yield* ch.read(). Otherwise, a
yield* ch.read() call may never be yielded.
Whether the channel is closed.
true by default.
