NAME ^

IO::Socket::Forwarder - bidirectionally forward data between two sockets

SYNOPSIS ^

  use IO::Socket::Forwarder qw(foward_sockets);

  forward_sockets($sock1, $sock2);

  forward_sockets($sock3, $sock4, debug => 1);

DESCRIPTION ^

This module allows to forward data between two sockets bidirectionally.

IO::Socket::SSL sockets are also supported.

FUNCTIONS

forward_sockets($sock1, $sock2, %opts)

Reads and writes data from both sockets simultaneously forwarding it.

On return both sockets will be closed.

This function automatically detects if any of the sockets is of type IO::Socket::SSL and doesn't require any extra configuration to handle them.

The following options are accepted:

debug => 1

turn on debugging. I

io_chunk_size => $size

maximun number of bytes allowed in IO operations

io_buffer_size => $size

size of the buffers used internally to transfer data between both sockets

buffer_1to2 => $data
buffer_2to1 => $data

these options allow to preload some data into the buffers used for transferring data between the two sockets.

SEE ALSO ^

IO::Socket, IO::Socket::SSL.

The samples directory contains a couple of scripts showing how to use this module.
