Struct tokio::io::DuplexStream

source ·
pub struct DuplexStream { /* private fields */ }
Expand description

A bidirectional pipe to read and write bytes in memory.

A pair of DuplexStreams are created together, and they act as a “channel” that can be used as in-memory IO types. Writing to one of the pairs will allow that data to be read from the other, and vice versa.

Closing a DuplexStream

If one end of the DuplexStream channel is dropped, any pending reads on the other side will continue to read data until the buffer is drained, then they will signal EOF by returning 0 bytes. Any writes to the other side, including pending ones (that are waiting for free space in the buffer) will return Err(BrokenPipe) immediately.


let (mut client, mut server) = tokio::io::duplex(64);


let mut buf = [0u8; 4];
server.read_exact(&mut buf).await?;
assert_eq!(&buf, b"ping");


client.read_exact(&mut buf).await?;
assert_eq!(&buf, b"pong");
