;;; Synched up with: FSF 21.3.

;;; Commentary:
;;; manages receiving a stream asynchronously, 
;;; parsing it into transactions, and then calling
;;; handler functions

;;; Our basic structure is the queue/process/buffer triple.  Each entry
;;; of the queue is a regexp/closure/function triple.  We buffer
;;; bytes from the process until we see the regexp at the head of the
;;; queue.  Then we call the function with the closure and the
;;; collected bytes.

;;; Code:

(defun tq-create (process)
  "Create and return a transaction queue communicating with PROCESS.
PROCESS should be a subprocess capable of sending and receiving
streams of bytes.  It may be a local process, or it may be connected
to a tcp server on another machine."
  (let ((tq (cons nil (cons process
			     (concat " tq-temp-"
				     (process-name process)))))))
    (set-process-filter process
			`(lambda (proc string)
			   (tq-filter ',tq string)))
