IO::Socket::INET(3pm)		 Perl Programmers Reference Guide	    IO::Socket::INET(3pm)

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 sockets in the
       AF_INET domain. It is built upon the IO::Socket interface and inherits all the methods
       defined by IO::Socket.

CONSTRUCTOR
       new ( [ARGS] )
	   Creates an "IO::Socket::INET" 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::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 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 or the IP-address on the "xx.xx.xx.xx" 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 ":".

	   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::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";

	    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.

   METHODS
       sockaddr ()

       sockport ()
	   Return the port number that the socket is using on the local host

       sockhost ()
	   Return the address part of the sockaddr structure for the socket in a text form
	   xx.xx.xx.xx

       peeraddr ()
	   Return the address part of the sockaddr structure for the socket on the peer host

       peerport ()
	   Return the port number for the socket on the peer host.

       peerhost ()
	   Return the address part of the sockaddr structure for the socket on the peer host in a
	   text form xx.xx.xx.xx
