NAME
"Socket::GetAddrInfo::Strict" - Provide Socket::GetAddrInfo functions which throw exceptions SYNOPSIS
use Socket qw( SOCK_STREAM ); use Socket::GetAddrInfo::Strict qw( getaddrinfo getnameinfo ); use IO::Socket; my $sock; my %hints = ( socktype => SOCK_STREAM ); my @res = getaddrinfo( "www.google.com", "www", \%hints ); while( my $ai = shift @res ) { $sock = IO::Socket->new(); $sock->socket( $ai->{family}, $ai->{socktype}, $ai->{protocol} ) or undef $sock, next; $sock->connect( $ai->{addr} ) or undef $sock, next; last; } if( $sock ) { my ( $host, $service ) = getnameinfo( $sock->peername ); print "Connected to $host:$service "; } DESCRIPTION
Socket::GetAddrInfo provides the functions of "getaddrinfo" and "getnameinfo", which return lists whose first element is error value, or false indicating no error occured. This module wraps the functions provided by "Socket::GetAddrInfo" to check this error value, and throw an exception (using "die") if an error occured. If not, then the remaining values are returned as normal. This can simplify the logic of a program which otherwise simply throws its own exception on failure anyway. FUNCTIONS
@res = getaddrinfo( $host, $service, $hints ) After a successful lookup, returns the list of address structures, as documented in Socket::GetAddrInfo. If the lookup fails, an exception containing the string form of the error is thrown instead. ( $host, $service ) = getnameinfo( $addr, $flags, $xflags ) After a successful lookup, returns the host and service name, as documented in Socket::GetAddrInfo. If the lookup fails, an exception containing the string form of the error is thrown instead. AUTHOR

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 : $@ "; 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. NOTE NOTE NOTE NOTE NOTE NOTE NOTE NOTE NOTE NOTE NOTE NOTE METHODS sockaddr () Return the address part of the sockaddr structure for the socket 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 SEE ALSO
