Crate streamunordered[][src]

A stream that efficiently multiplexes multiple streams.

This "combinator" provides the ability to maintain and drive a set of streams to completion, while also providing access to each stream as it yields new elements.

Streams are inserted into this set and their realized values are yielded as they are produced. This structure is optimized to manage a large number of streams. Streams managed by StreamUnordered will only be polled when they generate notifications. This reduces the required amount of work needed to coordinate large numbers of streams.

When a StreamUnordered is first created, it does not contain any streams. Calling poll in this state will result in Poll::Ready((None) to be returned. Streams are submitted to the set using insert; however, the stream will not be polled at this point. StreamUnordered will only poll managed streams when StreamUnordered::poll is called. As such, it is important to call poll after inserting new streams.

If StreamUnordered::poll returns Poll::Ready(None) this means that the set is currently not managing any streams. A stream may be submitted to the set at a later time. At that point, a call to StreamUnordered::poll will either return the stream's resolved value or Poll::Pending if the stream has not yet completed.

Whenever a value is yielded, the yielding stream's index is also included. A reference to the stream that originated the value is obtained by using StreamUnordered::get, StreamUnordered::get_mut, or StreamUnordered::get_pin_mut.

In normal operation, poll will yield a StreamYield::Item when it completes successfully. This value indicates that an underlying stream (the one indicated by the included index) produced an item. If an underlying stream yields Poll::Ready(None) to indicate termination, a StreamYield::Finished is returned instead. Note that as soon as a stream returns StreamYield::Finished, its token may be reused for new streams that are added.
