I want to read as many 24 bit chunks as possible from a file.
How can I do this using bitstrings’ ConstBitStream
when I don’t now how many chunks there are?
Currently I do this:
eventList = ConstBitStream(filename = 'events.dat') for i in range(1000) : packet = eventList.read(24)
(here I have to calculate the number of events beforehand)
You could read until an ReadError exeption is generated
try: while True: packet = eventList.read(24) except ReadError: pass
