NAME ^

IOMux::IPC - exchange data with external command

INHERITANCE ^

 IOMux::IPC
   is a IOMux::Bundle
   is a IOMux::Handler::Read
   is a IOMux::Handler

   IOMux::Bundle also extends IOMux::Handler::Write
   is a IOMux::Handler::Write
   is a IOMux::Handler

SYNOPSIS ^

  my $mux = IOMux::Select->new;  # or ::Poll

  use IOMux::Open '|-|', '|=|';
  my $pipe = $mux->open('|-|', $cmd, @cmdopts);

  use IOMux::IPC;
  my $ipc = IOMux::IPC->new(command => [$cmd, @cmdopts]);
  $mux->add($ipc);

  $pipe->getline(sub {print "$_[0]\n"});

DESCRIPTION ^

With this handler, you set-up a two way communication between the current process and some other process. This is not easy to program: you may need to play with timeouts every once in a while.

This module is based on IOMux::Bundle, because it will use two or three pipes to facilitate the communication.

Extends "DESCRIPTION" in IOMux::Bundle.

METHODS ^

Extends "METHODS" in IOMux::Bundle.

Constructors

Extends "Constructors" in IOMux::Bundle.

IOMux::IPC->new(%options)
 -Option    --Defined in           --Default
  command                            <required>
  errors                             <true>
  fh          IOMux::Handler         <required>
  mode                               |=|
  name        IOMux::Handler         '|$cmd|'
  read_size   IOMux::Handler::Read   32768
  stderr      IOMux::Bundle          <undef>
  stdin       IOMux::Bundle          <required>
  stdout      IOMux::Bundle          <required>
  write_size  IOMux::Handler::Write  4096
command => COMMAND|ARRAY

The external command to be executed. Either the COMMAND needs to parameters, or you need to pass an ARRAY of the command name and all its parameters.

errors => BOOLEAN

Include the stderr channel in the communication as well. These will be printed to STDERR by default.

fh => FILEHANDLE
mode => |-| or |=|

In the |-| mode, only STDIN and STDOUT are processed. Specifing the |=| has the same effect as setting the errors option: open a connection for STDERR as well.

name => STRING
read_size => INTEGER
stderr => IOMux::Handler::Read object
stdin => IOMux::Handler::Write object
stdout => IOMux::Handler::Read object
write_size => INTEGER
IOMux::IPC->open( $mode, <$cmd, $cmdopts>|<$cmdarray, %options> )

Open the pipe to read. $mode is either |-| or |=|. When you need to pass additional %options to the implied new(), then you must use an ARRAY for command name and its optional parameters.

example:

  my $mux = IOMux::Poll->new;
  $mux->open('|-|', 'sort', '-u');  # no opts
  $mux->open('|-|', ['sort', '-u'], %opts);
  $mux->open('|-|', 'sort');        # no opts
  $mux->open('|-|', ['sort'], %opts);
