|virtual base::ChannelElementBase::shared_ptr||createStream (base::PortInterface *port, const ConnPolicy &policy, bool is_sender) const =0|
This interface defines the function a transport protocol must support in order to allow Orocos components to remotely communicate one data type.
Typically, a transport will have more functions than these basic functions to implements it's transport-specific needs for each data type.
Creates a streaming channel element for reading or writing over this transport. It returns a ChannelElementBase that provides the implementation of sending or receiving data through the transport. Both sender and receiver find each other using the channel_id argument. Transports that do not support streaming may return null
|port||The port for which this channel is setup.|
|channel_id||If the transport receives a non-empty channel_id, it will create a channel that connects to this id. If channel id is empty, it will be filled in with a unique identifier that identifies this channel. This allows the local caller to connect to the remote channel in a second invocation of createRemoteChannel.|
|is_sender||Set to true in case you will write() to this channel element, set it to false in case you will read() from this channel element.|
