The tcl::transform::observer package provides a command creating a channel transformation which passes the read and written bytes through unchanged (like tcl::transform::identity), but additionally copies the data it has seen for each direction into channels specified at construction time.

Related transformations in this module are tcl::transform::adler32, tcl::transform::counter, tcl::transform::crc32, and tcl::transform::identity.

The internal TclOO class implementing the transform handler is a sub-class of the tcl::transform::core framework.


::tcl::transform::observe chan logw logr

This command creates an observer transformation on top of the channel chan and returns its handle. The channel handles logr and logw are there the data is copied to.
