dip.io.codecs.unicode

The dip.io.codecs.unicode module implements support for Unicode encoders and decoders used with streaming storage.

IUnicodeDecoder

class dip.io.codecs.unicode.IUnicodeDecoder

Base class: Interface

The IUnicodeDecoder interface defines the interface to be implemented by models being decoded by the UnicodeCodec codec.

set_unicode(model, data)

Set the model data from an Python v3 str object or a Python v2 unicode object.

Parameters:
  • model – is the model.
  • data – the encoded model data.
Returns:

the decoded model. This may be the original model populated from the storage location, or it may be a different model (of an appropriate type) created from the storage location.

IUnicodeEncoder

class dip.io.codecs.unicode.IUnicodeEncoder

Base class: Interface

The IUnicodeEncoder interface defines the interface to be implemented by models being encoded by the UnicodeCodec codec.

get_unicode(model)

Return the model data encoded as a Python v3 str object or a Python v2 unicode object.

Parameter:model – is the model.
Returns:the encoded model data.

UnicodeCodec

class dip.io.codecs.unicode.UnicodeCodec

Base class: Model

The UnicodeCodec class implements a codec that decodes and encodes models as Unicode. The codec does not set the format attribute. This should be defined in a sub-class or passed as an argument when the codec is created.

decoder_interface = IUnicodeDecoder
The decoder interface.
encoder_interface = IUnicodeEncoder
The encoder interface.
encoding = Str('utf8')
The Unicode encoding that is being used.
decode(model, source, location)

A model is decoded from a byte stream.

Parameters:
  • model – is the model.
  • source – is an iterator that will return the byte stream to be decoded.
  • location – is the storage location where the encoded model is being read from. It is mainly used for error reporting.
Returns:

the decoded model. This may be the original model populated from the storage location, or it may be a different model (of an appropriate type) created from the storage location.

encode(model, location)

A model is encoded as a byte stream.

Parameters:
  • model – is the model.
  • location – is the storage location where the encoded model will be written to. It is mainly used for error reporting.
Returns:

a generator that will return sections of the encoded byte stream.
