Open a new Context to be used with a Socket. The purpose of a Context is to permit applications to share a single socket, with its underlying dialers and listeners, while still benefiting from separate state tracking.
A new Context (object of class 'nanoContext' and 'nano').
Contexts allow the independent and concurrent use of stateful operations using the same socket. For example, two different contexts created on a rep socket can each receive requests, and send replies to them, without any regard to or interference with each other.
Only the following protocols support creation of contexts: req, rep, sub (in a pub/sub pattern), surveyor, respondent.
For nano objects, use the
$context() method, which will return a
s <- socket("req", listen = "inproc://nanonext") ctx <- context(s) ctx #> < nanoContext > #> - id: 1 #> - socket: 3 #> - state: opened #> - protocol: req close(ctx) close(s) n <- nano("req", listen = "inproc://nanonext") ctx <- n$context() ctx #> < nanoContext > #> - id: 2 #> - socket: 4 #> - state: opened #> - protocol: req close(ctx) n$close()
