NAME

POE::Filter::Ident -- A POE-based parser for the Ident protocol.

SYNOPSIS

    my $filter = POE::Filter::Ident->new();
    my @events = @{$filter->get( [ @lines ] )};

DESCRIPTION

POE::Filter::Ident takes lines of raw Ident input and turns them into weird little data structures, suitable for feeding to POE::Component::Client::Ident::Agent. They look like this:

    { name => 'event name', args => [ some info about the event ] }

CONSTRUCTOR

new

Creates a new POE::Filter::Ident object. Takes no arguments.

METHODS

get

Takes an array reference full of lines of raw Ident text. Returns an array reference of processed, pasteurized events.

put

There is no "put" method. That would be kinda silly for this filter, don't you think?

debug

Pass true/false value to enable/disable debugging information.
