<b>This tutorial is under construction.</b>
This tutorial presents the GNU Radio ZMQ blocks. It is a set of six Source Blocks and six Sink Blocks. The naming convention follows other source and sink blocks in that a source block provides data entering a GNU Radio flowgraph and a sink block sends data out of the flowgraph. It is a flowgraph-oriented perspective.
From the [https: //zeromq.org/ ZeroMQ] website: "ZeroMQ (also known as ØMQ, 0MQ, or zmq) looks like an embeddable networking library but acts like a concurrency framework. It gives you sockets that carry atomic messages across various transports like in-process, inter-process, TCP, and multicast."

== Types of ZMQ Blocks ==
The two basic groups of ZMQ blocks are those which transport stream data, and those which transport text strings. They are described below.
ZMQ blocks come in pairs:
PUB - SUB
PUSH - PULL
REQ - REP
The PUB, PUSH, and REP blocks are always sink blocks; the others are source blocks. Choosing which pair to use depends on your system architecture.
The PUB - SUB pair can be compared to broadcasting. The PUBlish sink sends out data which can be received by one or many SUBscribers.
The PUSH - PULL is a point to point link of equal peers.
REQuest - REPly pair is a point to point link which operates in lock-step: one REQ in gives one REP out. This case changes the perspective somewhat in that the flowgraph is acting as a server for a remote client.
