NAME

extension_perl_server - Gimp-Perl scripts net server

SYNOPSIS

<Toolbox>/Filters/Languages/_Perl/_Server

DESCRIPTION

Allow scripting GIMP with Perl providing Gimp::Net server.

If activated by the user, allows Gimp-Perl scripts to connect to the running GIMP instance. Also provides a working example of a GIMP extension in Gimp-Perl.

If run_mode is RUN_NONINTERACTIVE, will run in "batch mode" and expect the filehandle argument to be correct to communicate with the client. If RUN_INTERACTIVE, expects to wait for connections.

There is a security advisory about GIMP scripting servers. This program will only allow TCP connections if a password is specified (the "auth" option), thereby eliminating any network-related security risk.

PARAMETERS

 [&Gimp::PDB_INT32, "filehandle", "Batch file-handle"],
 [&Gimp::PDB_INT32, "verbose", "Gimp verbose var"],
