NAME ^

Net::SPDY::Framer - SPDY protocol implementation

ALPHA WARNING ^

Please read carefully: This is an ALPHA stage software. In particular this means that even though it probably won't kill your cat, re-elect George W. Bush nor install Solaris 11 Express edition to your hard drive, it is in active development, functionality is missing and no APIs are stable.

See TODO file in the distribution to learn about missing and planned functionality. You are more than welcome to join the development and submit patches with fixes or enhancements. Bug reports are probably not very useful at this point.

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Net::SPDY::Framer;

  my $framer = new Net::SPDY::Framer ({
      compressor => new Net::SPDY::Compressor,
      socket => $socket,
  });

  $framer->write_frame(
        type => Net::SPDY::Framer::PING,
        data => 'chuj',
  );
  while (my %frame = $framer->read_frame) {
        last if $frame{control} and $frame{type} eq Net::SPDY::Framer::PING;
  }

DESCRIPTION ^

Net::SPDY::Framer provides SPDY protocol access on top of a network socket. It serializes and deserializes packets as they are, without implementing any other logic. For session management, see Net::SPDY::Session.

CONSTANTS ^

For the actual values refer to the protocol specification.

Frame types

SYN_STREAM, SYN_REPLY, RST_STREAM, SETTINGS, PING, GOAWAY, HEADERS, WINDOW_UPDATE, CREDENTIAL.

Flags

FLAG_FIN, FLAG_UNIDIRECTIONAL.

PROPERTIES ^

compressor

Net::SPDY::Compressor object representing the Zlib streams (one in each direction) used by the framer.

socket

IO::Handle instance that is used for actual network communication.

FRAME FORMATS ^

These are the data structures that are consumed by write_frame() and produced by read_frame() methods. Their purpose is to coveniently represent the fields of serialized SPDY frames. Please refer to the protocol specification ("SEE ALSO" section) for descriptions of the actual fields.

Not all fields are mandatory at all occassions. Serializer may assume sane values for certain fields, that are marked as Input only below, or provided with defaults.

METHODS ^

new { socket => SOCKET, compressor => COMPRESSOR }

Creates a new framer instance. You need to create and pass both the socket for the network communication and the compressor instance.

write_frame FRAME

Serializes frame and writes it to the network socket.

read_frame

Reads frame from the network socket and returns it deserialized.
