Produces the integers from 0 to limit-1 in a queue. (deprecated)

    limit, num_epochs=None, shuffle=True, seed=None, capacity=32, shared_name=None,


  • limit: An int32 scalar tensor.
  • num_epochs: An integer (optional). If specified, range_input_producer produces each integer num_epochs times before generating an OutOfRange error. If not specified, range_input_producer can cycle through the integers an unlimited number of times.
  • shuffle: Boolean. If true, the integers are randomly shuffled within each epoch.
  • seed: An integer (optional). Seed used if shuffle == True.
  • capacity: An integer. Sets the queue capacity.
  • shared_name: (optional). If set, this queue will be shared under the given name across multiple sessions.
  • name: A name for the operations (optional).


A Queue with the output integers. A QueueRunner for the Queue is added to the current Graph's QUEUE_RUNNER collection.
