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.  If the "Listen" argument is given, but
           false, the queue size will be set to 5.

           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.
