DESCRIPTION

Net::Whois::RIPE::Syncupdates::Message is a subclass, primarily being used by Net::Whois::RIPE::Syncupdates, the RIPE NCC Syncupdates Perl interface.

See the Net::Whois::RIPE::Syncupdates manpage for more information.

CONSTANTS

Variable names accepted by the syncupdates server:

    ORIGIN
    NEW
    HELP
    DATA

METHODS

Net::Whois::RIPE::Syncupdates::Message

new ( )

Constructor.

auth ( )

Returns associated Authorization object of type Net::Whois::RIPE::Syncupdates::Message::Auth

getMessage( )

Return the message as a hashref, ready to be passed over to the syncupdates backend. Although this method is public, its primary use is to be called by Net::Whois::RIPE::Syncupdates::execute().

getDBObject( )

Return the database object stored within this instance, previously set via setDBObject(). Empty string if the DB object has not yet been set.

setDBObject ( OBJECT | RPSL_OBJECT )

Set the database object to be sent within this message. Objects are accepted either as string or as a Net::Whois::RIPE::RPSL object.

The Message object simply acts as a container, the supplied database object is being stored internally as a string. If passed a non-scalar value, setDBObject() will try to call an as_string() method upon that object, and store the returned string internally.

getOption ( OPTION )
setOption ( OPTION [, VALUE ] )
changedBy ( Email )
appendChangedBy ( OBJ )

It only works on text objects. No error conditions defined.

TODO: Use RPSL if you can

Net::Whois::RIPE::Syncupdates::Message::Auth

new ( )

Constructor

defaultAuthHook

Change default Authorization hook. Default is 'simple_sign'.

sign ( )

Calls the defined authorization hook, supplying the Whois object as parameter.

authHook ( [CODEREF] )

Returns or sets the authorization hook. Expects and returns a CODE reference.

simple_sign ( OBJECT )

The default authorization hook, which adds a password: line to the object. Custom hooks should do same sort of operations on Whois object.

  sub simple_sign {
    my $object = shift;

    return $object unless defaultPassword();

    return $object . 'password: '. defaultPassword() ."\n";
  }
