Net::Inspect::Flow - base interface for Net::Inspect::* flows
my $tcp = Net::Inspect::L4::TCP->new(...); my $raw = Net::Inspect::L3::IP->new($tcp); ...
Net::Inspect::Flow implements the interface for all flow objects, e.g. that they have an upper flow object. It provides a member
upper_flow on which the forwardinh hooks should be called.
Create object, subclasses should call Net::Inspect::Flow::new to initialize object. The given flow will be used for calling the hooks from the newly created flow. If called on object instead of class the object should clone itself. In this case the flow from the cloned object will be cloned too, unless a new flow is given.
Create if necessary a class derived from
Net::Inspect::Flow::Any, which contains the given methods additionally to the methods of
Net::Inspect::Flow::Any. These methods loop over the attached
flows and call the method with the same name on the flow and returns the first defined result.
Net::Inspect::Flow::Any provides the following methods:
