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" pro-
	   vides.

	       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 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-block-
	   ing 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 fol-
	   lowed by a number in parenthesis which is used if the service is not known by the sys-
	   tem.  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 construc-
	   tor 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 speci-
	   fied 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.
