NAME

POE::Component::Server::Echo - A POE component that implements an RFC 862 Echo server.

VERSION

version 1.66

SYNOPSIS

  use POE::Component::Server::Echo;

  my $self = POE::Component::Server::Echo->spawn( 
        Alias => 'Echo-Server',
        BindAddress => '127.0.0.1',
        BindPort => 7777,
        options => { trace => 1 },
  );

DESCRIPTION

POE::Component::Server::Echo implements a RFC 862 http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc862.html TCP/UDP echo server, using POE. The component encapsulates a class which may be used to implement further RFC protocols.

CONSTRUCTOR

spawn

Takes a number of optional values:

  "Alias", the kernel alias that this component is to be blessed with; 
  "BindAddress", the address on the local host to bind to, 
        defaults to L<POE::Wheel::SocketFactory|POE::Wheel::SocketFactory> default; 
  "BindPort", the local port that we wish to listen on for requests, 
        defaults to 7 as per RFC, this will require "root" privs on UN*X; 
  "options", should be a hashref, containing the options for the component's session, 
        see POE::Session for more details on what this should contain.

METHODS

sockname_tcp

Takes no arguments. Returns a list consisting of the socket port and address of the TCP listening socket as returned by Socket's sockaddr_in function.

sockname_udp

Takes no arguments. Returns a list consisting of the socket port and address of the UDP listening socket as returned by Socket's sockaddr_in function.

INPUT EVENTS
