NAME ^

POE::Component::Server::Inet - a super-server daemon implementation in POE

VERSION ^

version 0.06

SYNOPSIS ^

  use strict;
  use warnings;
  use POE qw(Component::Server::Inet);

  $|=1;

  my $inetd = POE::Component::Server::Inet->spawn( options => { trace => 0 } );

  my $echo = $inetd->add_tcp( port => 0, program => \&_echo );

  print "Started echo server on port: $echo\n";

  my $fake = $inetd->add_tcp( port => 0, program => \&_fake );

  print "Started a 'fake' server on $fake\n";

  my $fake2 = $inetd->add_tcp( port => 0, program => \&_fake2 );

  print "Started another 'fake' server on $fake2\n";

  $poe_kernel->run();
  exit 0;

  sub _echo {
    use FileHandle;
    autoflush STDOUT 1;
    while(<STDIN>) {
      print STDOUT $_;

DESCRIPTION ^

POE::Component::Server::Inet is an Inetd ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inetd ) super-server implementation in POE. It currently only supports TCP based connections.

You may either specify programs to run or use coderefs.

The component uses POE::Wheel::Run to do its magic.

CONSTRUCTOR ^

spawn

Starts a POE::Component::Server::Inet session and returns an object. Takes a number of optional arguments:

  'alias', an alias to address the component by;
  'options', a hashref of POE::Session options;
  'timeout', a number in seconds to wait before forcefully terminating forked processes, default 30;

METHODS ^

session_id

Takes no arguments. Returns the POE Session ID of the component.

add_tcp

Adds a TCP listener to the component. Takes a number of parameters:

  'port', the port to listen on, mandatory ( can be set to 0 if required );
  'program', a program or coderef to execute for each connection, mandatory;
  'programargs', an arrayref of parameters for the program being run;
  'allow', a Net::Netmask object of hosts to allow to connect;
  'deny', a Net::Ntemask object of hosts to deny connections from;
  'user', the UID of a user to switch to;
  'group', the GID of a group to switch to;

Options program, programargs, user and group are passed directly to POE::Wheel::Run's constructor, please check that documentation for extra information.

The method call returns the port that was assigned.

del_tcp

Removes a TCP listener. Takes one mandatory parameter:

  'port', the port to remove;

Any pending connections are dealt with.

shutdown

Terminates the component. All connections and wheels are closed.
