Module Version: 1.01   Source   Latest Release: Net-Z3950-ZOOM-1.30

NAME ^

Net::Z3950::ZOOM - Perl extension for invoking the ZOOM-C API.

SYNOPSIS ^

 use Net::Z3950::ZOOM;
 $conn = Net::Z3950::ZOOM::connection_new($host, $port);
 $errcode = Net::Z3950::ZOOM::connection_error($conn, $errmsg, $addinfo);
 Net::Z3950::ZOOM::connection_option_set($conn, databaseName => "foo");
 # etc.

DESCRIPTION ^

This module provides a simple thin-layer through to the ZOOM-C functions in the YAZ toolkit for Z39.50 and SRW/U communication. You should not be using this very nasty, low-level API. You should be using the ZOOM module instead, which implements a nice, Perlish API on top of this module, conformant to the ZOOM Abstract API described at http://zoom.z3950.org/api/

To enforce the don't-use-this-module prohibition, I am not even going to document it. If you really, really, really want to use it, then it pretty much follows the API described in the ZOOM-C documentation at http://www.indexdata.dk/yaz/doc/zoom.tkl

SEE ALSO ^

The ZOOM module, included in the same distribution as this one.
