Hi Toby,

Filters and Queues are a pretty useful concept. Right now, aside from the demo code, you'll probably want to start by reading the Pipes API Docs carefully for these classes, then scoping out the Pipes Utility Unit Tests. Each component is considered there with its own set of tests, so you can see a Queue or a Filter actually working in the wild without a huge supporting application all around it.

Briefly, you put them into a pipeline and send messages to control their operation. Those control messages are consumed by the Filter or Queue and not passed on down the pipe.

Just wanted to say that the best piece of advice here was to look into the Unit Tests. I've never actually looked at any Unit Test code before, and always avoided using it in my apps (as ever, mistakenly believing it was more complicated than it is). Not only have these classes helped me work out what's going on with Queues and Filters, but I've also learnt a lot about Unit Testing. Nice one Cliff!
