Cobra Interactive Query Language stream

NAME

stream — modify parameters for streaming input

SYNTAX

	stream [mode=text] [limit=N] [margin=N]

DESCRIPTION

This query command gives an online alternative to the command line options -text, -stream N, and -margin N.

These options are only effective if Cobra is used in streaming mode, while reading input from the standard input, rather than from files listed on the command line (the normal mode of operation).

In streaming mode, the initial set of tokens is processed according to the default setting, or as specified on the command-line. But, after the stream query command is executed, all subsequent reads from stdin will use the new parameter settings.

EXAMPLES

	: stream mode=text limit=500000 margin=1000

NOTES

This query command requires Cobra version 3.2 or later.
