To send forth in a current or stream; to cause to flow; to pour; as, his eyes streamed tears.
A (long) string of bytes, which may come from any source, including a file. Streams are operated upon by filters and other programs. "Stream" is often used as an alternative, active metaphor for "file", when considered in terms of sequential (serial) throughput that can be redirected.
In the audio driver, a sequence of stereo sample pairs. In the Movie Server library, an object that defines the media format handled by a source or destination device.
A stream is an abstraction of the information that is transported in between information sources and sinks. A stream is a collection of data, which is sequentially ordered, normally with respect to time. In the context of multimedia a digital representation of data is also assumed. source: EU-P103 domain: General usage: EU-P103
a logical entity that either produces or consumes information
A source of data logically consisting of a string of characters. The standard input (STDIN), standard output (STDOUT) and standard graphics (STDGRAPH) are the most commonly used streams.
A data structure of type FILE * used by various input/output routines.
a base class used to abstract the specifics of input and output from the underlying device(s)
a data object upon which various input and output operations may be performed
v. To send data from one device to another.
a new data type addition which represents a collection of data which can be operated on in parallel
a path traveled by data in a program
a series of data that needs to be processed unidirectionally in a predetermined order
Streams are in the form of video or audio which are transferred usually on the Internet in real-time or encoded on DVD discs.
A stream is defined as one user hearing one scene in a VHost show. For example: If a person hears 5 different scenes, then 5 streams have been used. If a person hears the same scene 10 times, then 10 streams have been used. Streams are measured by counting the VHost audio files which are "streamed" by Oddcast's servers over the Internet. If you place a single VHost scene on a web-page with 10,000 page-views, you should expect to use 10,000 streams.
Data of a distinct type sent from server to client at a rate defined by the server. For a typical video broadcast, for example, one stream could consist of the video signal, one stream could consist of the audio data, and one stream could contain the closed caption information. In most cases, each stream is served at the rate that it should be rendered by the client.
Verb or noun describing the process of transmitting digitised audio (or video) across the Internet so that it can be heard or viewed in real time.
An internet standard transport level protocol that provides the reliable, full duplex, stream service on which many application protocols depend. TCP allows a process on one machine to send a stream of data to a process on another. It is connection-oriented in the sense that before transmitting data, participants must establish a connection. Software implementing TCP usually resides in the operating system and uses the IP protocol to transmit information across the Internet. It is possible to terminate (shut down) one direction of flow across a TCP connection, leaving a one-way (simplex) connection. The Internet protocol suite is often referred to as TCP/IP because TCP is one of the two most fundamental protocols.
A kernel aggregate created by connecting STREAMS components, resulting from an application of the STREAMS mechanism. The primary components are the Stream head, the driver, and zero or more pushable modules between the Stream head and driver.
a connection between a device driver and a user process
a full-duplex connection between a process and a device or another process
The external representation of one or more objects.
a generalization of internal and external text objects
a markup object (usually) corresponding to a pespective in the same way that an SGML element (usually) corresponds with a document object
an object that encapsulates a storage medium to store binary data (for example, memory or disk files)
(1) A software path of messages related to one file. (2) A stream, or logical command queue, is associated with a slave in the intelligent peripheral interface (IPI) context. The stream is used in identifying IPI-3 commands destined for that slave. A slave may have 0, 1, or many streams associated with it at any given time.
a path of communication between a source of information and its destination
a source or sink of data, typically -- but not necessarily -- characters
a source or destination of data that may be associated with a piece of hardware
a connection to a file
a file or a physical device ( e
a hidden file that is linked to a normal (visible) file
a link between your program and a file
a specialised structure of units within a course
a structured program of study in a specific discipline area, which may be part of single or multiple award course program
a suggested list of courses to achieve a goal
A pattern of courses within the program that guides the student's studies and is distinctive from other patterns, but does not result in a designation on the diploma.
Anything issuing or moving with continued succession of parts; as, a stream of words; a stream of sand.
a continuously moving system, whose health is determined by it's balance
A continuous/variable duration information product that originates from a national or theater source. Real time video is an example of a stream product.
To pour out, or emit, a stream or streams.
move in large numbers; "people were pouring out of the theater"; "beggars pullulated in the plaza"
rain heavily; "Put on your rain coat-- it's pouring outside!"
Most often refers to a constant torrent of enemy shots, usually bullets, which is fired in such rapid succession that the separate shots appear to form a single, unbroken line. Usually impossible for a player to dodge his craft through without being hit. Is also sometimes used to describe tightly-packed â€œlinesâ€ of enemies, but usually relates to shots instead.
a a single connection to your NetSnap server
a single viewer
A hardware resource on a processor that issues instructions for and holds the state of one thread at a time. A stream may be thought of as a portion of the processor hardware; each processor contains 128 streams. Each stream has a context in physical registers and is in any one of three execution states: unreserved, reserved, or active. When active, a stream issues instructions to the processor, which executes instructions from all active streams one at a time in no particular order. When not active, a stream has no impact on the processor's performance.
a path through the system that is both created by a packet of information and the processor of that packet s information
The continuous delivery of small packets of information
