A node that is an unbounded buffer of messages. Messages are forwarded in an arbitrary order.

    template< typename T>
    class buffer_node : public graph_node, public receiver<T>, public sender<T> {

  • The type T must meet the CopyConstructible requirements from [copyconstructible] and CopyAssignable requirements from [copyassignable] ISO C++ Standard sections.

buffer_node is a graph_node, receiver<T>, and sender<T>.

buffer_node has a buffering and single-push properties.

buffer_node forwards messages in an arbitrary order to a single successor in its successor set.

Member functions

explicit buffer_node(graph &g)

Constructs an empty buffer_node that belongs to the graph g.

explicit buffer_node(const buffer_node &src)

Constructs an empty buffer_node that belongs to the same graph g as src. Any intermediate state of src, including its links to predecessors and successors, is not copied.

bool try_put(const T &v)

Adds v to the set of items managed by the node, and tries forwarding it to a successor.

Returns: true

bool try_get(T &v)

Returns: true if an item can be removed from the node and assigned to v. Returns false if there is no non-reserved item currently in the node.
