Net::BitTorrent::Torrent::Tracker::UDP - Single UDP BitTorrent Tracker


new ( [ARGS] )

Creates a Net::BitTorrent::Torrent::Tracker::UDP object. This constructor should not be used directly.


url ( )

Returns the related UDP 'URL' according to the original metadata.

as_string ( [ VERBOSE ] )

Returns a 'ready to print' dump of the object's data structure. If called in void context, the structure is printed to STDERR. VERBOSE is a boolean value.


  • This is ALPHA code and as such may not work as expected.

  • Should I pretend UDP uses connections and trigger the 'tracker_connect' callback whenever we send() data just to keep things even?
