Net::SAP - Session Announcement Protocol (rfc2974)
use Net::SAP; my $sap = Net::SAP->new( 'ipv6-global' ); my $packet = $sap->receive(); $sap->close();
Net::SAP allows receiving and sending of SAP (RFC2974) multicast packets over IPv4 and IPv6.
The new() method is the constructor for the
Net::SAP class. You must specify the SAP multicast group you want to join:
ipv4-local ipv4-org ipv4-global ipv6-node ipv6-link ipv6-site ipv6-org ipv6-global
Alternatively you may pass the address of the multicast group directly. When the
Net::SAP object is created, it joins the multicast group, ready to start receiving or sending packets.
This method blocks until a valid SAP packet has been received. The packet is parsed, decompressed and returned as a
This method sends out SAP packet on the multicast group that the
Net::SAP object to bound to. The $data parameter can either be a
Net::SAP::Packet object, a
Net::SDP object or raw SDP data.
Net::SAP::Packet object gives the greatest control over what is sent. Otherwise default values will be used.
If no origin_address has been set, then it is set to the IP address of the first network interface.
Packets greater than 1024 bytes will not be sent. This method returns 0 if packet was sent successfully.
Returns the address of the multicast group that the socket is bound to.
Gets or sets the TTL of outgoing packets.
Leave the SAP multicast group and close the socket.
