tcl::transform::counter — Counter transformation

Synopsis

package require Tcl 8.6

package require tcl::transform::core ?1?

package require tcl::transform::counter ?1?

::tcl::transform::counter chan -option value...

Description

The tcl::transform::counterr package provides a command creating a channel transformation which passes the read and written bytes through unchanged (like tcl::transform::identity), but additionally counts the bytes it has seen for each direction and stores these counts in Tcl variables specified at construction time.

Related transformations in this module are tcl::transform::adler32, tcl::transform::crc32, tcl::transform::identity, and tcl::transform::observe.

The internal TclOO class implementing the transform handler is a sub-class of the tcl::transform::core framework.

API

::tcl::transform::counter chan -option value...

This command creates a counter transformation on top of the channel chan and returns its handle. The accepted options are

-read-variable varname
The value of the option is the name of a global or namespaced variable, the location where the transformation has to store the byte count of the data read from the channel.

If not specified, or the empty string, the counter of the read direction is not saved.
-write-variable varname
The value of the option is the name of a global or namespaced variable, the location where the transformation has to store the byte count of the data written to the channel.

If not specified, or the empty string, the counter of the write direction is not saved.
