NAME ^

RFID::Reader::Serial - Abstract base class for readers implemented over a serial connection.

SYNOPSIS ^

This is an abstract base class used for building an RFID Reader class implemented over a TCP connection. It provides the basic I/O methods that an object based on RFID::Reader will expect, and generally a reader based on this class will simply inherit from it and add a few details. In other words, this class is fairly complete, and you shouldn't have to add much to it to make it workable.

DESCRIPTION ^

Constructor

new

This constructor accepts its parameters as a hash. Any unrecognized arguments are intrepeted as parameters to the set method.

The following parameters are accepted:

Port

The serial port object that communication should take place over. The object should be compatible with Win32::SerialPort; the Unix equivalent is Device::SerialPort. You are responsible for creating the serial port object.

Timeout

The maximum time to wait for a response from the reader, in seconds.

Baudrate

An integer specifying the speed at which communication should take place.

SEE ALSO ^

RFID::Reader, RFID::Reader::Serial, Win32::SerialPort, Device::SerialPort.
