Inheritance diagram

__init__()
close()None

Closes the file. This is also implicitly done when the DatagramOutputFile destructs.

open(file: FileReference)bool

Opens the indicated filename for writing. Returns true if successful, false on failure.

open(filename: Filename)bool

Opens the indicated filename for writing. Returns true on success, false on failure.

open(out: ostream, filename: Filename)bool

Starts writing to the indicated stream. Returns true on success, false on failure. The DatagramOutputFile does not take ownership of the stream; you are responsible for closing or deleting it when you are done.

property streamostream

Returns the ostream represented by the output file.

writeHeader(header: str)bool

Writes a sequence of bytes to the beginning of the datagram file. This may be called any number of times after the file has been opened and before the first datagram is written. It may not be called once the first datagram is written.
