NAME

Bitcoin::RPC::Client - Bitcoin Core API RPCs

SYNOPSIS

   use Bitcoin::RPC::Client;

   # Create Bitcoin::RPC::Client object
   $btc = Bitcoin::RPC::Client->new(
      user     => "username",
      password => "p4ssword",
      host     => "127.0.0.1",
   );

   # Getting Data when a hash is returned
   $info    = $btc->getinfo;
   $balance = $info->{balance};
   print $balance;

   # A person would need to know the JSON elements of
   # the output. 
   # https://bitcoin.org/en/developer-reference#getinfo
   #
   # Ex.
   #{
   #   "version" : 80100,
   #   "protocolversion" : 70001,
   #   "walletversion" : 60000,
   #   "balance" : 0.00720000,
   #   "blocks" : 253032,
   #   "connections" : 16,
   #   "proxy" : "",
   #   "difficulty" : 50810339.04827648,
   #   "testnet" : false,
   #   "keypoololdest" : 1365114158,
   #   "keypoolsize" : 101,
   #   "paytxfee" : 0.00500000,
   #   "errors" : ""
   #}

   # Other functions that do not return a JSON object will have a scalar result
   $balance  = $btc->getbalance("yourAccountName");
   print $balance;

   # JSON::Boolean objects must be passed as boolean parameters
   $balance  = $btc->getbalance("yourAccountName", 1, JSON::true);
   print $balance;

DESCRIPTION

This module implements in PERL the functions that are currently part of the Bitcoin Core RPC client calls (bitcoin-cli).The function names and parameters are identical between the Bitcoin Core API and this module. This is done for consistency so that a developer only has to reference one manual: https://bitcoin.org/en/developer-reference#remote-procedure-calls-rpcs

CONSTRUCTOR

$btc = Bitcoin::RPC::Client->new( %options )

This method creates a new Bitcoin::RPC::Client and returns it.

   Key                 Default
   -----------         -----------
   user                undef (Required)
   password            undef (Required)
   host                undef (Required)
   port                8332
   timeout             20
   ssl                 0
   verify_hostname     1
   syntax              0
   debug               0

verify_hostname - OpenSSL support has been removed from the Bitcoin Core project as of v0.12.0.

syntax - setting to 1 will turn on correct method name checking as well as usage errors. This works with all versions of Bitcoin Core, but the API class currently only contains what is valid for v0.12.0. You may want to keep this off if you are using a version other than v0.12.0 and you are getting errors you think you should not be getting.

debug - Turns on raw HTTP request/response output from LWP::UserAgent.
