NAME ^

Net::EPP::Protocol - Low-level functions useful for both EPP clients and servers.

SYNOPSIS ^

        #!/usr/bin/perl
        use Net::EPP::Protocol;
        use IO::Socket;
        use strict;

        # create a socket:

        my $socket = IO::Socket::INET->new( ... );

        # send a frame down the socket:

        Net::EPP::Protocol->send_frame($socket, $xml);

        # get a frame from the socket:

        my $xml = Net::EPP::Protocol->get_frame($socket);

DESCRIPTION ^

EPP is the Extensible Provisioning Protocol. EPP (defined in RFC 4930) is an application layer client-server protocol for the provisioning and management of objects stored in a shared central repository. Specified in XML, the protocol defines generic object management operations and an extensible framework that maps protocol operations to objects. As of writing, its only well-developed application is the provisioning of Internet domain names, hosts, and related contact details.

This module implements functions that are common to both EPP clients and servers that implement the TCP transport as defined in RFC 4934. The main consumer of this module is currently Net::EPP::Client.

METHODS ^

        my $xml = Net::EPP::Protocol->get_frame($socket);

This method reads a frame from the socket and returns a scalar containing the XML. $socket must be an IO::Handle or one of its subclasses (ie IO::Socket::*).

If the transmission fails for whatever reason, this method will croak(), so be sure to enclose it in an eval().

        Net::EPP::Protocol->send_frame($socket, $xml);

This method prepares an RFC 4934 compliant EPP frame and transmits it to the remote peer. $socket must be an IO::Handle or one of its subclasses (ie IO::Socket::*).

If the transmission fails for whatever reason, this method will croak(), so be sure to enclose it in an eval(). Otherwise, it will return a true value.

        my $frame = Net::EPP::Protocol->prep_frame($xml);

This method returns the XML frame in "wire format" with the protocol header prepended to it. The return value can be printed directly to an open socket, for example:

        print STDOUT Net::EPP::Protocol->prep_frame($frame->toString);
