A simple circular buffer to handle byte streams (for instance from a serial port), heavily based on enque.
bringbuf is very basic circular buffer implementation. Its purpose is to handle byte streams (for instance from a serial port). It is based on enque, which is a efficient way to handle queues in Python. First bytes written to the buffer, are first bytes read from the buffer. If the buffer is full it overflows and overwrites the oldest data.
The code is available at github.
There are no requirements. bringbuf has view dependencies (collections, itertools and warnings), which are core modules.
Install bringbuf using the following command:
$ [sudo] pip install bringbuf
#!/usr/bin/env python #coding=utf-8 # The following example shows the basic usage of bRingBuf class from bringbuf.bringbuf import bRingBuf # define a ring buffer with the size of 5 bytes buf = bRingBuf(5) # the buffers length initially is zero print(buf.len) # check if buffer is empty (True) print(buf.is_empty()) # enqueue 6 bytes to the buffer # (note that the buffer will overflow) buf.enqueue([0x01, 0x02, 0x03, 0x04, 0x05, 0x06]) # now five bytes are in the buffer (maximal number of bytes) print(buf.len) # check if buffer is empty (False) print(buf.is_empty()) # read content of the whole buffer without removing any bytes print(buf.read(buf.len)) # read and remove three bytes from the buffer print(buf.dequeue(3)) # read content of the whole buffer without removing any bytes print(buf.read(buf.len)) # enque four new bytes buf.enqueue([0x07, 0x08, 0x09]) # read content of the whole buffer without removing any bytes print(buf.read(buf.len)) # check whether buffer contains a pattern? # this might be solved by buf.index, which also returns the index, # but this is a more descriptive way to check print(buf.contains([0x02, 0x08]), buf.contains([0x07, 0x08, 0x09])) # index of patterns print(buf.index([0x02, 0x08]), buf.index([0x07, 0x08, 0x09])) # contains pattern (with offset)? print(buf.contains([0x02, 0x08], 2), buf.contains([0x07, 0x08, 0x09], offset=2)) # index of patterns (with offset) print(buf.index([0x02, 0x08], 2), buf.index([0x07, 0x08, 0x09], 2)) # read with offset print(buf.read(3, 3)) # enqueue a single byte buf.enqueue_byte(0xff) print(buf.read(buf.len)) # dequeue a single byte print(buf.dequeue_byte())
