Festival::Client - Communicate with a Festival server


   use Festival::Client;
   $Festival = Festival::Client->New("my.festival.server");
   $Festival->say("Something to say");


Festival is a class implementing a simple Festival client in Perl.


new ( [ HOST [, PORT ] ] )

This is the constructor for a new Festival object. HOST is the name of the remote host to which a Festival connection is required.

PORT is the Festival port to connect to, it defaults to the standard port 1314 if nothing else is found.

The constructor returns the open socket, or undef if an error has been encountered.


The obvious.
