Prev:Default input and output streams


There are a few useful stream-related words which are not generic, but merely built up from the stream protocol.

First, a simple composition of stream-write and stream-nl:
stream-print ( str stream -- )


Processing lines one by one:
stream-lines ( stream -- seq )

lines ( -- seq )

each-line ( ... quot: ( ... line -- ... ) -- ... )


Processing blocks of data:
stream-contents ( stream -- seq )

contents ( -- seq )

each-block ( ... quot: ( ... block -- ... ) -- ... )


Copying the contents of one stream to another:
stream-copy* ( in out -- )

stream-copy ( in out -- )
