NAME

Net::OpenSoundControl::Server - OpenSound Control server implementation

SYNOPSIS

  use Net::OpenSoundControl::Server;
  use Data::Dumper qw(Dumper);

  sub dumpmsg {
      my ($sender, $message) = @_;
      
      print "[$sender] ", Dumper $message;
  }

  my $server = Net::OpenSoundControl::Server->new(
      Port => 7777, Handler => \&dumpmsg) or
      die "Could not start server: $@\n";

  $server->readloop();

DESCRIPTION

This module implements an OSC server (right now, blocking and not-yet multithreaded...) receiving messages via UDP. Once a message is received, the server calls a handler routine. The handler receives the host name of the sender as well as the (decoded) OSC message or bundle.

METHODS

new(Port => $port, Name => $name, Handler => \&handler)

Creates a new server object. Default port is 7123, default name is Net-OpenSoundControl-Server:7123, default handler is undef.

Returns undef on failure (in this case, $@ is set).

name()

Returns the name of the server

port()

Returns the port the server is listening at

readloop()

Enters a loop waiting for messages. Once a message is received, the server will call the handler subroutine, if defined.
