IO::Socket::INET6(3)	       User Contributed Perl Documentation	     IO::Socket::INET6(3)

NAME
       IO::Socket::INET6 - Object interface for AF_INET|AF_INET6 domain sockets

SYNOPSIS
	   use IO::Socket::INET6;

DESCRIPTION
       "IO::Socket::INET6" provides an object interface to creating and using sockets in either
       AF_INET or AF_INET6 domains. It is built upon the IO::Socket interface and inherits all
       the methods defined by IO::Socket.

CONSTRUCTOR
       new ( [ARGS] )
	   Creates an "IO::Socket::INET6" object, which is a reference to a newly 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::INET6"
	   provides.

	       Domain	   Address family		AF_INET | AF_INET6 | AF_UNSPEC (default)
	       PeerAddr    Remote host address		<hostname>[:<port>]
	       PeerHost    Synonym for PeerAddr
	       PeerPort    Remote port or service	<service>[(<no>)] | <no>
	       PeerFlow    Remote flow information
	       PeerScope   Remote address scope
	       LocalAddr   Local host bind address	hostname[:port]
	       LocalHost   Synonym for LocalAddr
	       LocalPort   Local host bind port 	<service>[(<no>)] | <no>
	       LocalFlow   Local host flow information
	       LocalScope  Local host address scope
	       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 adresses for multi-homed hosts
	       Blocking    Determine if connection will be blocking mode

	   If "Listen" is defined then a listen socket is created, else if the socket type, which
	   is derived from the protocol, is SOCK_STREAM then connect() is called.

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

	   The "PeerAddr" can be a hostname,  the IPv6-address on the "2001:800:40:2a05::10" form
	   , or the IPv4-address on the "213.34.234.245" form.	The "PeerPort" can be a number or
	   a symbolic service name.  The service name might be followed by a number in
	   parenthesis 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 ":", and
	   closing the IPv6 address on bracktes "[]" if necessary:
	   "124.678.12.34:23","[2a05:345f::10]:23","any.server.com:23".

	   If "Domain" is not given, AF_UNSPEC is assumed, that is, both AF_INET and AF_INET6
	   will be both considered when resolving DNS names. AF_INET6 is prioritary.  If you
	   guess you are in trouble not reaching the peer,(the service is not available via
	   AF_INET6 but AF_INET) you can either try Multihomed (try any address/family until
	   reach) or concrete your address "family" (AF_INET, AF_INET6).

	   If "Proto" is not given and you specify a symbolic "PeerPort" port, then the
	   constructor will try to derive "Proto" from the service name.  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 to be 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::INET6->new(PeerAddr => 'www.perl.org',
					    PeerPort => 'http(80)',
					    Proto    => 'tcp');

	   Suppose either you have no IPv6 connectivity or www.perl.org has no http service on
	   IPv6. Then,

	   (Trying all address/families until reach)

	      $sock = IO::Socket::INET6->new(PeerAddr => 'www.perl.org',
					    PeerPort => 'http(80)',
					    Multihomed => 1 ,
					    Proto    => 'tcp');

	   (Concrete to IPv4 protocol)

	      $sock = IO::Socket::INET6->new(PeerAddr => 'www.perl.org',
					    PeerPort => 'http(80)',
					    Domain => AF_INET ,
					    Proto    => 'tcp');

	      $sock = IO::Socket::INET6->new(PeerAddr => 'localhost:smtp(25)');

	      $sock = IO::Socket::INET6->new(Listen    => 5,
					    LocalAddr => 'localhost',
					    LocalPort => 9000,
					    Proto     => 'tcp');

	      $sock = IO::Socket::INET6->new('[::1]:25');

	      $sock = IO::Socket::INET6->new(PeerPort  => 9999,
					    PeerAddr  => Socket6::inet_ntop(AF_INET6,in6addr_broadcast),
					    Proto     => udp,
					    LocalAddr => 'localhost',
					    Broadcast => 1 )
					or die "Can't bind : $@\n";

	    NOTE NOTE NOTE NOTE NOTE NOTE NOTE NOTE NOTE NOTE NOTE NOTE

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