DESCRIPTION

       The ::struct namespace contains a commands for processing finite queues.

       It  exports  a  single  command,  ::struct::queue.  All functionality provided here can be
       reached through a subcommand of this command.

       Note: As of version 1.4.1 of this package a critcl based C  implementation  is  available.
       This implementation however requires Tcl 8.4 to run.

       The  ::struct::queue  command  creates  a  new  queue object with an associated global Tcl
       command whose name is queueName.  This command may be used to invoke various operations on
       the queue.  It has the following general form:

       queueName option ?arg arg ...?
              Option  and  the  args  determine the exact behavior of the command.  The following
              commands are possible for queue objects:

       queueName clear
              Remove all items from the queue.

       queueName destroy
              Destroy the queue, including its storage space and associated command.

       queueName get ?count?
              Return the front count items of the queue and remove them from the queue.  If count
              is  not specified, it defaults to 1.  If count is 1, the result is a simple string;
              otherwise, it is a list.  If specified, count must be greater than or equal  to  1.
              If  there  are  not enoughs items in the queue to fulfull the request, this command
              will throw an error.

       queueName peek ?count?
              Return the front count items of the queue, without removing them  from  the  queue.
              If count is not specified, it defaults to 1.  If count is 1, the result is a simple
              string; otherwise, it is a list.  If specified, count must be greater than or equal
              to  1.   If  there  are not enoughs items in the queue to fulfull the request, this
              command will throw an error.

       queueName put item ?item ...?
              Put the item or items specified into the queue.  If more than one  item  is  given,
              they will be added in the order they are listed.

       queueName unget item
              Put  the  item into the queue, at the front, i.e. before any other items already in
              the queue. This makes this operation the complement to the method get.

       queueName size
              Return the number of items in the queue.
