Net::DBus::Binding::Bus - Handle to a well-known message bus instance
use Net::DBus::Binding::Bus; # Get a handle to the system bus my $bus = Net::DBus::Binding::Bus->new(type => &Net::DBus::Binding::Bus::SYSTEM);
This is a specialization of the Net::DBus::Binding::Connection module providing convenience constructor for connecting to one of the well-known bus types. There is no reason to use this module directly, instead get a handle to the bus with the
system methods in Net::DBus.
- my $bus = Net::DBus::Binding::Bus->new(type => $type);
- my $bus = Net::DBus::Binding::Bus->new(address => $addr);
Open a connection to a message bus, either a well known bus type specified using the
typeparameter, or an arbitrary bus specified using the
addressparameter. If the
privateparameter is set to a true value, then a private connection to the bus is obtained. The caller must explicitly disconnect this bus instance before releasing the last instance of the object.
Send a request to the bus registering the well known name specified in the
$service_nameparameter. If another client already owns the name, registration will be queued up, pending the exit of the other client.
- my $name = $bus->get_unique_name
Returns the unique name by which this processes' connection to the bus is known. Unique names are never re-used for the entire lifetime of the bus daemon.
Register a signal match rule with the bus controller, allowing matching broadcast signals to routed to this client.
Unregister a signal match rule with the bus controller, preventing further broadcast signals being routed to this client
