NAME

Net::Jabber::Client - Jabber Client Library

SYNOPSIS

  Net::Jabber::Client is a module that provides a developer easy access
  to the Jabber Instant Messaging protocol.

DESCRIPTION

  Client.pm uses Protocol.pm to provide enough high level APIs and 
  automation of the low level APIs that writing a Jabber Client in 
  Perl is trivial.  For those that wish to work with the low level 
  you can do that too, but those functions are covered in the 
  documentation for each module.

  Net::Jabber::Client provides functions to connect to a Jabber server,
  login, send and receive messages, set personal information, create
  a new user account, manage the roster, and disconnect.  You can use
  all or none of the functions, there is no requirement.

  For more information on how the details for how Net::Jabber is written
  please see the help for Net::Jabber itself.

  For a full list of high level functions available please see 
  Net::Jabber::Protocol.

Basic Functions

    use Net::Jabber;

    $Con = new Net::Jabber::Client();

    $Con->Connect(hostname=>"jabber.org");

    if ($Con->Connected()) {
      print "We are connected to the server...\n";
    }

    #
    # For the list of available function see Net::Jabber::Protocol.
    #

    $Con->Disconnect();

METHODS

Basic Functions

    new(debuglevel=>0|1|2, - creates the Client object.  debugfile
        debugfile=>string)   should be set to the path for the debug
                             log to be written.  If set to "stdout" 
                             then the debug will go there.  debuglevel 
                             controls the amount of debug.  For more
                             information about the valid setting for
                             debuglevel and debugfile see 
                             Net::Jabber::Debug.

    Connect(hostname=>string, - opens a connection to the server listed
            port=>integer)      in the host name value, on the port
                                listed.  The defaults for the two are
                                localhost and 5222.

    Disconnect() - closes the connection to the server.

    Connected() - returns 1 if the Transport is connected to the server,
                  and 0 if not.
