NAME

IOMux::Pipe::Write - write to an external command

INHERITANCE

 IOMux::Pipe::Write
   is a IOMux::Handler::Write
   is a IOMux::Handler

SYNOPSIS

  my $mux = IOMux::Select->new;  # or ::Poll

  use IOMux::Open '|-';
  my $pipe = $mux->open('|-', $command, @cmd_options);

  use IOMux::Pipe::Write;
  my $pipe = IOMux::Pipe::Write->new
    (command => [$command, @cmd_options]);
  $mux->add($pipe);

  $pipe->write($text);
  $pipe->print($text);

  write $pipe $text;
  print $pipe $text;

DESCRIPTION

In an event driven program, you must be careful with every Operation System call, because it can block the event mechanism, hence the program as a whole. Often you can be lazy with writes, because its communication buffers are usually working quite asynchronous... but not always. You may skip the callbacks for small writes and prints.

IOMux::Pipe::Write->bare(%options)

Creates a pipe, but does not start a process (yet). Used by IOMux::IPC, which needs three pipes for one process. Returned is not only a new pipe object, but also a read handle to be connected to the other side.

All %options which are available to IOMux::Handler::Write::new() can be used here as well.

 -Option   --Default
  read_size  4096
read_size => INTEGER

example:

  my ($in, $in_rh)
      = IOMux::Pipe::Write->bare(name => 'stdin');
IOMux::Pipe::Write->new(%options)
 -Option    --Defined in           --Default
  command                            <required>
  fh          IOMux::Handler         <required>
  name        IOMux::Handler         '|$cmd'
  write_size  IOMux::Handler::Write  4096
command => COMMAND|ARRAY

The external command to be executed. Either the COMMAND needs to parameters, or you need to pass an ARRAY of the command name and all its parameters.

fh => FILEHANDLE
name => STRING
write_size => INTEGER
IOMux::Pipe::Write->open( $mode, <$cmd, $cmdopts>|<$cmdarray, %options> )

Open the pipe to write. $mode is always -|. When you need to pass additional %options to the implied new(), then you must use an ARRAY for command name and its optional parameters.

example:

  my $mux = IOMux::Poll->new;
  $mux->open('|-', 'lpr', '-#4');  # no opts
  $mux->open('|-', ['lpr', '-#4'], %opts);
  $mux->open('|-', 'lpr');        # no opts
  $mux->open('|-', ['lpr'], %opts);
