NAME ^

Sys::Sendfile::FreeBSD - Wrapper for the FreeBSD sendfile(2) function.

SYNOPSIS ^

use Sys::Sendfile::FreeBSD qw(sendfile);

open(F, "file.txt"); my $socket = IO::Socket::INET->new(PeerAddr => "127.0.0.1:1234"); my $offset = 0; my $bytes_sent = 0; my $result = sendfile(fileno(F), fileno($socket), $offset, (stat("file.txt))[7], $bytes_sent); close(F); close($sock);

DESCRIPTION ^

Uses the FreeBSD sendfile(2) function to send the contents of an open file handle directly to an open socket. See the sendfile(2) manual page for more details.

Note that this module does not currently support the header/trailer functionality of the sendfile(2) function, nor does it allow the flags argument to be set.
