Net::DBus::Binding::Bus - Handle to a well-known message bus instance
# Get a handle to the system bus
my $bus = Net::DBus::Binding::Bus->new(type => &Net::DBus::Binding::Bus::SYSTEM);
This is a specialization of the Net::DBus::Binding::Connection module providing convenience constructor for connecting to one of the well-known bus types. There is no reason to use this module directly, instead get a handle to the bus with the session or system methods in Net::DBus.
Open a connection to a message bus, either a well known bus type specified using the type parameter, or an arbitrary bus specified using the address parameter. If the private parameter is set to a true value, then a private connection to the bus is obtained. The caller must explicitly disconnect this bus instance before releasing the last instance of the object.
Send a request to the bus registering the well known name specified in the $service_name parameter. If another client already owns the name, registration will be queued up, pending the exit of the other client.
Returns the unique name by which this processes' connection to the bus is known. Unique names are never re-used for the entire lifetime of the bus daemon.
Register a signal match rule with the bus controller, allowing matching broadcast signals to routed to this client.
Unregister a signal match rule with the bus controller, preventing further broadcast signals being routed to this client
