Part of twisted.protocols.basic View Source View In Hierarchy
Known subclasses: twisted.protocols.basic.SafeNetstringReceiver
This uses djb's Netstrings protocol to break up the input into strings.
Each string makes a callback to stringReceived, with a single argument of that string.Security features:
|Method||dataReceived||Called whenever data is received.|
Inherited from Protocol:
|Method||connectionLost||Called when the connection is shut down.|
|Method||makeConnection||Make a connection to a transport and a server.|
|Method||connectionMade||Called when a connection is made.|
Called whenever data is received.Use this method to translate to a higher-level message. Usually, some callback will be made upon the receipt of each complete protocol message.
|Parameters||data||a string of indeterminate length. Please keep in mind that you will probably need to buffer some data, as partial (or multiple) protocol messages may be received! I recommend that unit tests for protocols call through to this method with differing chunk sizes, down to one byte at a time.|
