Table Of Contents

package require TclOO
package require tcl::chan::core ?1.1?

DESCRIPTION

The tcl::chan::core package provides a TclOO class implementing common behaviour needed by virtually every reflected or virtual channel (initialization, finalization).

This class expects to be used as either superclass of a concrete channel class, or to be mixed into such a class.

Class API

Instance API

The API of channel core instances provides only two methods, both corresponding to channel handler commands (For reference see TIP 219). They expect to be called from whichever object instance the channel core was made a part of.
