Detailed Description

Base class for objects that can be written to and read from Bam files.

See also TypedObject for detailed instructions.

Member Function Documentation

object __reduce__ ( )
object __reduce_persist__ ( object  pickler)
str encodeToBamStream ( )

Converts the TypedWritable object into a single stream of data using a BamWriter, and returns that data as a string string.

Returns empty string on failure.

This is a convenience method particularly useful for cases when you are only serializing a single object. If you have many objects to process, it is more efficient to use the same BamWriter to serialize all of them together.

fillin ( DatagramIterator  scan,
BamReader  manager 
)

This internal function is intended to be called by each class's make_from_bam() method to read in all of the relevant data from the BamFile for the new object.

It is also called directly by the BamReader to re-read the data for an object that has been placed on the stream for an update.

UpdateSeq getBamModified ( )

Returns the current bam_modified counter.

This counter is normally incremented automatically whenever the object is modified.

static TypeHandle getClassType ( )
static
markBamModified ( )

Increments the bam_modified counter, so that this object will be invalidated and retransmitted on any open bam streams.

This should normally not need to be called by user code; it should be called internally when the object has been changed in a way that legitimately requires its retransmission to any connected clients.
