Detailed Description

template<typename M>
class message_filters::Chain< M >

Chains a dynamic number of simple filters together. Allows retrieval of filters by index after they are added.

The Chain filter provides a container for simple filters. It allows you to store an N-long set of filters inside a single structure, making it much easier to manage them.

Adding filters to the chain is done by adding shared_ptrs of them to the filter. They are automatically connected to each other and the output of the last filter in the chain is forwarded to the callback you've registered with Chain::registerCallback

Example:

void myCallback(const MsgConstPtr& msg)
{
}

Chain<Msg> c;
c.addFilter(boost::make_shared<PassThrough<Msg> >());
c.addFilter(boost::make_shared<PassThrough<Msg> >());
c.registerCallback(myCallback);

It is also possible to pass bare pointers in, which will not be automatically deleted when Chain is destructed:

Chain<Msg> c;
PassThrough<Msg> p;
c.addFilter(&p);
c.registerCallback(myCallback);
