We're back after a server migration that caused effbot.org to fall over a bit harder than expected. Expect some glitches.

The ImageFileIO Module

The ImageFileIO module can be used to read an image from a socket, or any other stream device.

This module is deprecated. New code should use the Parser class in the ImageFile module instead.

Functions

ImageFileIO.ImageFileIO(stream)

Adds buffering to a stream file object, in order to provide seek and tell methods required by the Image.open method. The stream object must implement read and close methods.
