NAME ^

DOCSIS::ConfigFile::Encode - Encode functions for a DOCSIS config-file.

SYNOPSIS ^

    @uchar = snmp_object({
                 value => { oid => $str, type => $str, value => $str },
             });
    @uchar = bigint({ value => $bigint });
    @uchar = int({ value => $int });
    @uchar = uint({ value => $uint });
    @uchar = ushort({ value => $ushort });
    @uchar = uchar({ value => $char });
    @uchar = vendorspec({
                 value  => '0x001337', # vendors ID
                 nested => [
                     {
                         type => $int, # vendor specific type
                         value => $int, # vendor specific value
                     },
                 ],
             });
    @uchar = ip({ value => '1.2.3.4' });
    @uchar = ether({ value => '0x0123456789abcdef' });
    @uchar = ether({ value => $uint });
    @uchar = string({ value => '0x0123456789abcdef' });
    @uchar = string({ value => 'string containing percent: %25' });
    @uchar = hexstr({ value => '0x0123456789abcdef' });
    () = mic({ value => $any });

DESCRIPTION ^

This module has functions which is used to encode "human" data into list of unsigned characters (0-255) (refered to as "bytes") later in the pod. This list can then be encoded into binary data using:

    $bytestr = pack 'C*', @uchar;

FUNCTIONS ^

snmp_object

This function encodes a human-readable SNMP oid into a list of bytes:

    @bytes = (
      #-type---length---------value-----type---
        0x30,  $total_length,         # object
        0x06,  int(@oid),     @oid,   # oid
        $type, int(@value),   @value, # value
    );

bigint

Returns a list of bytes representing the $bigint. This can be any number (negative or positive) which can be representing using 64 bits.

int

Returns a list of bytes representing the $int. This can be any number (negative or positive) which can be representing using 32 bits.

uint

Returns a list of bytes representing the $uint. This can be any positive number which can be representing using 32 bits.

ushort

Returns a list of bytes representing the $ushort. This can be any positive number which can be representing using 16 bits.

uchar

Returns a list with one byte representing the $uchar. This can be any positive number which can be representing using 8 bits.

vendorspec

Will byte-encode a complex vendorspec datastructure.

ip

Returns a list of four bytes representing the $ip. The $ip must be in in the format "1.2.3.4".

ether

This function use either "uint" or "hexstr" to encode the input value. It will figure out the function to use by checking the input for either integer value or a string looking like a hex-string.

objectid

Encodes MIB number as value of OBJECTID can be in format: 1.2.3.4, .1.2.3.4

string

Returns a list of bytes representing the $str. Will use "hexstr" to decode it if it looks like a hex string (a string starting with leading "0x"). In other cases, it will decode it itself. The input string might also be encoded with a simple uri-encode format: "%20" will be translated to a space, and "%25" will be translated into "%", before encoded using ord().

stringz

Returns a list of bytes representing the $str with a zero terminator at the end. The "\0" byte will be added unless seen as the last element in the list.

Only ServiceClassName needs this, see DOCSIS::ConfigFile::Syminfo for more details.

hexstr

Will encode any hex encoded string into a list of bytes. The string can have an optional leading "0x".

mic

Cannot encode CM/CMTS mic without complete information about the config file, so this function returns an empty list.

no_value

This method will return an empty list. It is used by DOCSIS types, which has zero length.
