Method Details [hide private]

encode(...)

 

Decodes the object input and returns a tuple (output object, length consumed).

input must be an object which provides the bf_getreadbuf buffer slot. Python strings, buffer objects and memory mapped files are examples of objects providing this slot.

errors defines the error handling to apply. It defaults to 'strict' handling.

The method may not store state in the Codec instance. Use StreamCodec for codecs which have to keep state in order to make encoding/decoding efficient.

The decoder must be able to handle zero length input and return an empty object of the output object type in this situation.

Overrides: codecs.Codec.encode
(inherited documentation)
