t.w.p.i.DccSendProtocol(protocol.Protocol, styles.Ephemeral) : class documentation

Part of twisted.words.protocols.irc View Source View In Hierarchy

Protocol for an outgoing Direct Client Connection SEND.
Method __init__ Undocumented
Method connectionMade Called when a connection is made.
Method dataReceived Called whenever data is received.
Method sendBlock Undocumented
Method connectionLost Called when the connection is shut down.

Inherited from BaseProtocol (via Protocol):

Method makeConnection Make a connection to a transport and a server.

Inherited from Ephemeral:

Method __getstate__ Undocumented
Method __setstate__ Undocumented
def __init__(self, file): (source)
def connectionMade(self): (source)

Called when a connection is made.

This may be considered the initializer of the protocol, because it is called when the connection is completed. For clients, this is called once the connection to the server has been established; for servers, this is called after an accept() call stops blocking and a socket has been received. If you need to send any greeting or initial message, do it here.
def dataReceived(self, data): (source)

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.
Parametersdataa 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.
def sendBlock(self): (source)
def connectionLost(self, reason): (source)

Called when the connection is shut down.

Clear any circular references here, and any external references to this Protocol. The connection has been closed.
