NAME ^

Net::Write::Layer2 - object for a link layer (layer 2) descriptor

SYNOPSIS ^

   use Net::Write::Layer2;

   my $desc = Net::Write::Layer2->new(
      dev => 'eth0',
   );

   $desc->open;
   $desc->send('G'x666);
   $desc->close;

DESCRIPTION ^

This is the class for creating a layer 2 descriptor.

ATTRIBUTES ^

dev

The string specifying network interface to use.

Under Unix-like systems, this is in this format: \w+\d+ (example: eth0).

Under Windows systems, this is more complex; example: \Device\NPF_{0749A9BC-C665-4C55-A4A7-34AC2FBAB70F}

METHODS ^

new

Object constructor. You MUST pass a valid dev attribute. There is no default value. Returns undef on error.

open

Open the interface. Returns undef on error.

send (scalar)

Send raw data to the network.

close

Close the descriptor.

CAVEATS ^

Writing junk to loopback interface on BSD systems will not work.

SEE ALSO ^
