mrpt::comms::CSerialPort Class Referenceabstract

Detailed Description

A communications serial port built as an implementation of a utils::CStream.

On communication errors (eg. the given port number does not exist, timeouts,...), most of the methods will raise an exception of the class std::exception

The serial port to open is passed in the constructor in the form of a string description, which is platform dependent.

In Windows they are numbered "COM1"-"COM4" and "\\.\COMXXX" for numbers above. It is recomended to always use the prefix "\\.\" despite the actual port number.

In Linux the name must refer to the device, for example: "ttyUSB0","ttyS0". If the name string does not start with "/" (an absolute path), the constructor will assume the prefix "/dev/".

History:

Todo:
Add the internal buffer to the Windows implementation also

Reads a block of bytes from the stream into Buffer, and returns the amound of bytes actually read, without waiting for more extra bytes to arrive (just those already enqued in the stream).

Note that this method will fallback to ReadBuffer() in most CStream classes but in some hardware-related classes.

This method reads from the serial port until one of the characters in eol are found.

Parameters
eol_charsA line reception is finished when one of these characters is found. Default: LF (10), CR (13).
total_timeout_msIf >0, the maximum number of milliseconds to wait.
out_timeoutIf provided, will hold true on return if a timeout ocurred, false on a valid read.
Returns

◆ Seek() [1/2]

virtual uint64_t mrpt::io::CStream::Seek ( int64_t  Offset,
CStream::TSeekOrigin  Origin = sFromBeginning 
)
pure virtualinherited

Introduces a pure virtual method for moving to a specified position in the streamed resource.

he Origin parameter indicates how to interpret the Offset parameter. Origin should be one of the following values:

  • sFromBeginning (Default) Offset is from the beginning of the resource. Seek moves to the position Offset. Offset must be >= 0.
  • sFromCurrent Offset is from the current position in the resource. Seek moves to Position + Offset.
  • sFromEnd Offset is from the end of the resource. Offset must be <= 0 to indicate a number of bytes before the end of the file.
    Returns
    Seek returns the new value of the Position property.

Implemented in mrpt::io::CPipeBaseEndPoint, mrpt::io::CFileStream, mrpt::io::CFileGZInputStream, mrpt::io::CMemoryStream, mrpt::io::CFileGZOutputStream, mrpt::io::CFileOutputStream, and mrpt::io::CFileInputStream.
