NAME ^

Perinci::Examples::FileStream - Examples for reading/writing files (using streaming result)

VERSION ^

This document describes version 0.80 of Perinci::Examples::FileStream (from Perl distribution Perinci-Examples), released on 2017-07-11.

DESCRIPTION ^

The functions in this package demonstrate byte streaming of input and output.

The functions are separated into this module because these functions read/write files on the filesystem and might potentially be dangerous if Perinci::Examples is exposed to the network by accident.

See also Perinci::Examples::FilePartial which uses partial technique instead of streaming.

FUNCTIONS ^

append_file

Usage:

 append_file(%args) -> [status, msg, result, meta]

This is like write_file() except that it appends instead of overwrites existing file.

This function is not exported.

Arguments ('*' denotes required arguments):

Returns an enveloped result (an array).

First element (status) is an integer containing HTTP status code (200 means OK, 4xx caller error, 5xx function error). Second element (msg) is a string containing error message, or 'OK' if status is 200. Third element (result) is optional, the actual result. Fourth element (meta) is called result metadata and is optional, a hash that contains extra information.

Return value: (any)

read_file

Usage:

 read_file(%args) -> [status, msg, result, meta]

This function demonstrate output streaming of bytes.

To do output streaming, on the function side, you just return a coderef which can be called by caller (e.g. CLI framework Perinci::CmdLine) to read data from. Code must return data or undef to signify exhaustion.

This works over remote (HTTP) too, because output streaming is supported by Riap::HTTP (version 1.2) and Perinci::Access::HTTP::Client. Streams are translated into HTTP chunks.

This function is not exported.

Arguments ('*' denotes required arguments):

Returns an enveloped result (an array).

First element (status) is an integer containing HTTP status code (200 means OK, 4xx caller error, 5xx function error). Second element (msg) is a string containing error message, or 'OK' if status is 200. Third element (result) is optional, the actual result. Fourth element (meta) is called result metadata and is optional, a hash that contains extra information.

Return value: (buf)

write_file

Usage:

 write_file(%args) -> [status, msg, result, meta]

This function demonstrates input streaming of bytes.

To do input streaming, on the function side, you just specify one your args with the stream property set to true (stream => 1). In this example, the content argument is set to streaming.

If you run the function through Perinci::CmdLine, you'll get a coderef instead of the actual value. You can then repeatedly call the code to read data. This currently works for local functions only. As of this writing, Riap::HTTP protocol does not support input streaming. It supports partial input though (see the documentation on how this works) and theoretically streaming can be emulated by client library using partial input. However, client like Perinci::Access::HTTP::Client does not yet support this.

Note that the argument's schema is still buf*, not code*.

Note: This function overwrites existing file.

This function is not exported.

Fourth element (meta) is called result metadata and is optional, a hash that contains extra information.
