NAME ^

Net::Frame::Layer::ICMPv4 - Internet Control Message Protocol v4 layer object

SYNOPSIS ^

   use Net::Frame::Simple;
   use Net::Frame::Layer::ICMPv4 qw(:consts);

   my $icmp = Net::Frame::Layer::ICMPv4->new(
      type     => NF_ICMPv4_TYPE_ECHO_REQUEST,
      code     => NF_ICMPv4_CODE_ZERO,
      checksum => 0,
   );

   # Build an ICMPv4 echo-request
   use Net::Frame::Layer::ICMPv4::Echo;
   my $echo = Net::Frame::Layer::ICMPv4::Echo->new(
      payload => 'echo'
   );

   my $echoReq = Net::Frame::Simple->new(
      layers => [ $icmp, $echo ]
   );
   print $echoReq->print."\n";

   # Build an information-request
   use Net::Frame::Layer::ICMPv4::Information;
   my $info = Net::Frame::Layer::ICMPv4::Information->new(
      payload => 'info'
   );
   $icmp->type(NF_ICMPv4_TYPE_INFORMATION_REQUEST);

   my $infoReq = Net::Frame::Simple->new(
      layers => [ $icmp, $info ]
   );
   print $infoReq->print."\n";

   # Build an address-mask request
   use Net::Frame::Layer::ICMPv4::AddressMask;
   my $mask = Net::Frame::Layer::ICMPv4::AddressMask->new(
      payload => 'mask'
   );

DESCRIPTION ^

This modules implements the encoding and decoding of the ICMPv4 layer.

RFC: ftp://ftp.rfc-editor.org/in-notes/rfc792.txt

See also Net::Frame::Layer for other attributes and methods.

ATTRIBUTES ^

type
code

Type and code fields. See CONSTANTS.

checksum

The checksum of ICMPv4 header.

The following are inherited attributes. See Net::Frame::Layer for more information.

raw
payload
nextLayer

METHODS ^

new
new (hash)

Object constructor. You can pass attributes that will overwrite default ones. See SYNOPSIS for default values.

computeChecksums

Computes the ICMPv4 checksum.

getKey
getKeyReverse

These two methods are basically used to increase the speed when using recv method from Net::Frame::Simple. Usually, you write them when you need to write match method.

match (Net::Frame::Layer::ICMPv4 object)

This method is mostly used internally. You pass a Net::Frame::Layer::ICMPv4 layer as a parameter, and it returns true if this is a response corresponding for the request, or returns false if not.

The following are inherited methods. Some of them may be overriden in this layer, and some others may not be meaningful in this layer. See Net::Frame::Layer for more information.

layer
computeLengths
computeChecksums
pack
unpack
encapsulate
getLength
getPayloadLength
print
dump

CONSTANTS ^
