NAME

IO::Socket::UNIX - Object interface for AF_UNIX domain sockets

SYNOPSIS

    use IO::Socket::UNIX;

DESCRIPTION

IO::Socket::UNIX provides an object interface to creating and using sockets in the AF_UNIX domain. It is built upon the IO::Socket interface and inherits all the methods defined by IO::Socket.

CONSTRUCTOR

new ( [ARGS] )

Creates an IO::Socket::UNIX object, which is a reference to a newly created symbol (see the Symbol package). new optionally takes arguments, these arguments are in key-value pairs.

In addition to the key-value pairs accepted by IO::Socket, IO::Socket::UNIX provides.

    Local       Path to local fifo
    Peer        Path to peer fifo
    Listen      Create a listen socket

If the constructor is only passed a single argument, it is assumed to be a Peer specification.

As of VERSION 1.18 all IO::Socket objects have autoflush turned on by default. This was not the case with earlier releases.
