NAME

Redis::Parser::XS - unified redis protocol parser

SYNOPSIS

    use Redis::Parser::XS;
    
    my @output;
    
    my $buf = "+OK" . 
              "\x0d\x0a";
    
    my $len = parse_redis $buf, \@output;
    
    if (!defined $len) {
    
        warn "incorrect protocol message\n";
        
    } elsif ($len == 0) {
    
        warn "not enough data to parse, " . 
             "read some more and try again\n";
        
        if (length ($buf) > 16384) {  # 16k and still incomplete ?
                                      # better to just bail
            ...
        }
    } else { # $len > 0
    
        warn "parsed $len bytes\n";
        
        # got status reply:
        #    @output = ( [ '+', 'OK' ] )
        
        $buf = substr $buf, $len; 
    }

DESCRIPTION

Easy way to parse unified redis protocol.

Protocol specification http://redis.io/topics/protocol

FUNCTIONS

$len = parse_redis $buf, \@output;

Parses redis protocol messages from $buf and pushes each message into @output. Returns undef on error or total length of parsed data. Return value of 0 returned as a "0 but true" string and indicates, that there isn't enough data to parse even one message.

Parsed messages added to the @output in the following format:

    @output = (
        
        ['+', 'OK'                 ],  # +OK     CRLF
                                       # 
        ['-', 'ERROR'              ],  # -ERROR  CRLF
                                       #
        [':', '123'                ],  # :123    CRLF
                                       # 
        ['$', 'foo'                ],  # $3      CRLF
                                       # foo     CRLF
                                       #
        ['$', undef                ],  # $-1     CRLF
                                       # 
        ['$', ''                   ],  # $0      CRLF
                                       #         CRLF
                                       #
        ['*', []                   ],  # *0      CRLF
                                       #
        ['*', undef                ],  # *-1     CRLF
                                       #
        ['*', [ 'foo',                 # *2      CRLF 
                ['+', 'OK'],           # $3      CRLF
                 ...         ]         # foo     CRLF
                                       # +OK     CRLF
                                       # ...
                                       #
        ['*', ['foo', undef ]      ],  # *2      CRLF 
                                       # $3      CRLF 
                                       # foo     CRLF 
                                       # $-1     CRLF
