Wx::Socket - wxSocket* classes USAGE
use Wx qw(:socket) ; use Wx::Event qw(EVT_SOCKET_INPUT EVT_SOCKET_LOST) ; use Wx::Event qw(EVT_SOCKET_CONNECTION) ; ########## # CLIENT # ########## my $sock = Wx::SocketClient->new(wxSOCKET_WAITALL); EVT_SOCKET_INPUT($parent , $sock , &onInput ) ; EVT_SOCKET_LOST($parent , $sock , &onClose ) ; $sock->Connect('localhost',5050) ; if (! $sock->IsConnected ) { print "ERROR " ;} sub onInput { my ( $sock , $this , $evt ) = @_ ; my $length = 123; my $buffer ; $sock->Read($buffer , 1024 , $length ) ; } ########## # SERVER # ########## my $sock = Wx::SocketServer->new('localhost',5050,wxSOCKET_WAITALL); EVT_SOCKET_CONNECTION($parent , $sock , &onConnect ) ; if ( !$sock->Ok ) { print "ERROR " ;} sub onConnect { my ( $sock , $this , $evt ) = @_ ; my $client = $sock->Accept(0) ; my ($local_host,$local_port) = $client->GetLocal ; my ($peer_host,$peer_port) = $client->GetPeer ; $client->Write("This is a data test! ") ; ... or ... $client->Write( $data , length($data) ) ; $client->Close ; } METHODS
All the methods work as in wxWidgets (see the documentation). The functions for reading data (Read, ReadMsg, Peek) take 3 arguments, like the Perl read() function: ## To read the data into the variable $sock->Read($buffer , 1024) ; ... or ... ## To append data at the given offset: $sock->Read($buffer , 1024 , $offset ) ; The write functions (Write, WriteMsg, Unread) can be used with 1 or 2 arguments: $client->Write("This is a data test! ") ; $client->Write($data , $length) ; EVENTS
The events are: EVT_SOCKET EVT_SOCKET_ALL EVT_SOCKET_INPUT EVT_SOCKET_OUTPUT EVT_SOCKET_CONNECTION EVT_SOCKET_LOST The EVT_SOCKET works as in wxWidgets, the others are wxPerl extensions. Note that EVT_SOCKET events of wxSocketClient and wxSocketServer work differently than other event types. First you need to set the event handler: $sock->SetEventHandler($handler, $id) ; Then you set what types of event you want to receive: ## this select all. $sock->SetNotify(wxSOCKET_INPUT_FLAG|wxSOCKET_OUTPUT_FLAG| wxSOCKET_CONNECTION_FLAG|wxSOCKET_LOST_FLAG) ; Enable the event notification: $sock->Notify(1) ; And only after this use: ## note that $handler must be the same that was used in ## SetEventHandler EVT_SOCKET($handler, $id , sub{...} ) To make the events easier to use, all the proccess is automatic, and you just use: EVT_SOCKET_INPUT($handler , $socket , sub{...} ) EVT_SOCKET_OUTPUT($handler , $socket , sub{...} ) EVT_SOCKET_CONNECTION($handler , $socket , sub{...} ) EVT_SOCKET_LOST($handler , $socket , sub{...} ) ## This is for the events not used yet by the above: EVT_SOCKET_ALL($parent , $socket , sub{...} ) ** The new way is better to handle more than one socket in the same time too.

Log::Log4perl::Appender::Socket - Log to a socket SYNOPSIS
use Log::Log4perl::Appender::Socket; my $appender = Log::Log4perl::Appender::Socket->new( PeerAddr => "", PeerPort => 1234, ); $appender->log(message => "Log me "); DESCRIPTION
This is a simple appender for writing to a socket. It relies on IO::Socket::INET and offers all parameters this module offers. Upon destruction of the object, pending messages will be flushed and the socket will be closed. If the appender cannot contact the server during the initialization phase (while running the constructor "new"), it will "die()". If the appender fails to log a message because the socket's "send()" method fails (most likely because the server went down), it will try to reconnect once. If it succeeds, the message will be sent. If the reconnect fails, a warning is sent to STDERR and the "log()" method returns, discarding the message. If the option "silent_recovery" is given to the constructor and set to a true value, the behaviour is different: If the socket connection can't be established at initialization time, a single warning is issued. Every log attempt will then try to establish the connection and discard the message silently if it fails. If you don't even want the warning, set the "no_warning" option to a true value. Connecting at initialization time may not be the best option when running under Apache1 Apache2/prefork, because the parent process creates the socket and the connections are shared among the forked children--all the children writing to the same socket could intermingle messages. So instead of that, you can use "defer_connection" which will put off making the connection until the first log message is sent. EXAMPLE
Write a server quickly using the IO::Socket::INET module: use IO::Socket::INET; my $sock = IO::Socket::INET->new( Listen => 5, LocalAddr => 'localhost', LocalPort => 12345, Proto => 'tcp'); while(my $client = $sock->accept()) { print "Client connected "; while(<$client>) { print "$_ "; } } Start it and then run the following script as a client: use Log::Log4perl qw(:easy); my $conf = q{ log4perl.category = WARN, Socket log4perl.appender.Socket = Log::Log4perl::Appender::Socket log4perl.appender.Socket.PeerAddr = localhost log4perl.appender.Socket.PeerPort = 12345 log4perl.appender.Socket.layout = SimpleLayout }; Log::Log4perl->init($conf); sleep(2); for(1..10) { ERROR("Quack!"); sleep(5); } COPYRIGHT AND LICENSE
