#{ Corpus View
######################################################################

[docs]class StreamBackedCorpusView(AbstractLazySequence): """ A 'view' of a corpus file, which acts like a sequence of tokens: it can be accessed by index, iterated over, etc. However, the tokens are only constructed as-needed -- the entire corpus is never stored in memory at once. The constructor to ``StreamBackedCorpusView`` takes two arguments: a corpus fileid (specified as a string or as a ``PathPointer``); and a block reader. A "block reader" is a function that reads zero or more tokens from a stream, and returns them as a list. A very simple example of a block reader is: >>> def simple_block_reader(stream): ... return stream.readline().split() This simple block reader reads a single line at a time, and returns a single token (consisting of a string) for each whitespace-separated substring on the line. When deciding how to define the block reader for a given corpus, careful consideration should be given to the size of blocks handled by the block reader. Smaller block sizes will increase the memory requirements of the corpus view's internal data structures (by 2 integers per block). On the other hand, larger block sizes may decrease performance for random access to the corpus. (But note that larger block sizes will *not* decrease performance for iteration.) Internally, ``CorpusView`` maintains a partial mapping from token index to file position, with one entry per block. When a token with a given index *i* is requested, the ``CorpusView`` constructs it as follows: 1. First, it searches the toknum/filepos mapping for the token index closest to (but less than or equal to) *i*. 2. Then, starting at the file position corresponding to that index, it reads one block at a time using the block reader until it reaches the requested token. The toknum/filepos mapping is created lazily: it is initially empty, but every time a new block is read, the block's initial token is added to the mapping. (Thus, the toknum/filepos map has one entry per block.) In order to increase efficiency for random access patterns that have high degrees of locality, the corpus view may cache one or more blocks. :note: Each ``CorpusView`` object internally maintains an open file object for its underlying corpus file. This file should be automatically closed when the ``CorpusView`` is garbage collected, but if you wish to close it manually, use the ``close()`` method. If you access a ``CorpusView``'s items after it has been closed, the file object will be automatically re-opened. :warning: If the contents of the file are modified during the lifetime of the ``CorpusView``, then the ``CorpusView``'s behavior is undefined. :warning: If a unicode encoding is specified when constructing a ``CorpusView``, then the block reader may only call ``stream.seek()`` with offsets that have been returned by ``stream.tell()``; in particular, calling ``stream.seek()`` with relative offsets, or with offsets based on string lengths, may lead to incorrect behavior. :ivar _block_reader: The function used to read a single block from the underlying file stream. :ivar _toknum: A list containing the token index of each block that has been processed. In particular, ``_toknum[i]`` is the token index of the first token in block ``i``. Together with ``_filepos``, this forms a partial mapping between token indices and file positions. :ivar _filepos: A list containing the file position of each block that has been processed. In particular, ``_toknum[i]`` is the file position of the first character in block ``i``. Together with ``_toknum``, this forms a partial mapping between token indices and file positions. :ivar _stream: The stream used to access the underlying corpus file. :ivar _len: The total number of tokens in the corpus, if known; or None, if the number of tokens is not yet known. :ivar _eofpos: The character position of the last character in the file. This is calculated when the corpus view is initialized, and is used to decide when the end of file has been reached. :ivar _cache: A cache of the most recently read block. It is encoded as a tuple (start_toknum, end_toknum, tokens), where start_toknum is the token index of the first token in the block; end_toknum is the token index of the first token not in the block; and tokens is a list of the tokens in the block.
