Treatment merge

flow/u8::merge


Inputs

⇥ a: Stream<u8>
⇥ b: Stream<u8>
⇥ select: Stream<bool>

Outputs

↦ value: Stream<u8>


Merge two streams of u8.

The two streams are merged using the select stream:

  • when true, value from a is used;
  • when false, value from b is used.

ℹ️ No value from either a or b are discarded, they are used when select give turn.

⚠️ When select ends merge terminates without treating the remaining values from a and b. When select give turn to a or b while the concerned stream is ended, the merge terminates. Merge continues as long as select and concerned stream does, while the other can be ended.
