NAME

IO::Socket::INET - Object interface for AF_INET domain sockets 

SYNOPSIS

    use IO::Socket::INET;
 

DESCRIPTION

"IO::Socket::INET" provides an object interface to creating and using socketsin the AF_INET domain. It is built upon the IO::Socket interface andinherits all the methods defined by IO::Socket. 

CONSTRUCTOR

new ( [ARGS] )
Creates an "IO::Socket::INET" object, which is a reference to anewly created symbol (see the "Symbol" package). "new"optionally takes arguments, these arguments are in key-value pairs.

In addition to the key-value pairs accepted by IO::Socket,"IO::Socket::INET" provides.

 PeerAddr    Remote host address          <hostname>[:<port>] PeerHost    Synonym for PeerAddr PeerPort    Remote port or service       <service>[(<no>)] | <no> LocalAddr   Local host bind address      hostname[:port] LocalHost   Synonym for LocalAddr LocalPort   Local host bind port         <service>[(<no>)] | <no> Proto       Protocol name (or number)    "tcp" | "udp" | ... Type        Socket type              SOCK_STREAM | SOCK_DGRAM | ... Listen      Queue size for listen ReuseAddr   Set SO_REUSEADDR before binding Reuse       Set SO_REUSEADDR before binding (deprecated,                                              prefer ReuseAddr) ReusePort   Set SO_REUSEPORT before binding Broadcast   Set SO_BROADCAST before binding Timeout     Timeout value for various operations MultiHomed  Try all addresses for multi-homed hosts Blocking    Determine if connection will be blocking mode

If "Listen" is defined then a listen socket is created, else if thesocket type, which is derived from the protocol, is SOCK_STREAM thenconnect() is called. If the "Listen" argument is given, but false,the queue size will be set to 5.

Although it is not illegal, the use of "MultiHomed" on a socketwhich is in non-blocking mode is of little use. This is because thefirst connect will never fail with a timeout as the connect callwill not block.

The "PeerAddr" can be a hostname or the IP-address on the``xx.xx.xx.xx'' form. The "PeerPort" can be a number or a symbolicservice name. The service name might be followed by a number inparenthesis which is used if the service is not known by the system.The "PeerPort" specification can also be embedded in the "PeerAddr"by preceding it with a ``:''.

If "Proto" is not given and you specify a symbolic "PeerPort" port,then the constructor will try to derive "Proto" from the servicename. As a last resort "Proto" ``tcp'' is assumed. The "Type"parameter will be deduced from "Proto" if not specified.

If the constructor is only passed a single argument, it is assumed tobe a "PeerAddr" specification.

If "Blocking" is set to 0, the connection will be in nonblocking mode.If not specified it defaults to 1 (blocking mode).

Examples:

   $sock = IO::Socket::INET->new(PeerAddr => 'www.perl.org',                                 PeerPort => 'http(80)',                                 Proto    => 'tcp');   $sock = IO::Socket::INET->new(PeerAddr => 'localhost:smtp(25)');   $sock = IO::Socket::INET->new(Listen    => 5,                                 LocalAddr => 'localhost',                                 LocalPort => 9000,                                 Proto     => 'tcp');   $sock = IO::Socket::INET->new('127.0.0.1:25');   $sock = IO::Socket::INET->new(                           PeerPort  => 9999,                           PeerAddr  => inet_ntoa(INADDR_BROADCAST),                           Proto     => udp,                               LocalAddr => 'localhost',                           Broadcast => 1 )                        or die "Can't bind : $@\n";

As of VERSION 1.18 all IO::Socket objects have autoflush turned onby default. This was not the case with earlier releases.
