NAME

Net::Jabber::X::Ident - Jabber X Ident Delegate

SYNOPSIS

  Net::Jabber::X::Ident is a companion to the Net::Jabber::X module.
  It provides the user a simple interface to set and retrieve all 
  parts of a Jabber X Ident.

DESCRIPTION

  To initialize the Ident with a Jabber <x/> you must pass it the 
  XML::Parser Tree array from the module trying to access the <x/>.  
  In the callback function:

    use Net::Jabber;

    sub iq {
      my $foo = new Net::Jabber::Foo(@_);

      my @xTags = $foo->GetX("jabber:x:ident");

      my $xTag;
      foreach $xTag (@xTags) {
        $xTag->....
        
      }
      .
      .
      .
    }

  You now have access to all of the retrieval functions available.

  To create a new Ident to send to the server:

    use Net::Jabber;

    $foo = new Net::Jabber::Foo();
    $x = $foo->NewX("jabber:x:ident");

  Now you can call the creation functions below.

  For more information about the array format being passed to the CallBack
  please read the Net::Jabber::Client documentation.

Retrieval functions

    $from        = $xTag->GetFrom();
    $to          = $xTag->GetTo();
    $replyto     = $xtag->GetReplyTo();
    $cc          = $xTag->GetCC();
    $forwardedby = $xTag->GetForwardedBy();

Creation functions

    $xTag->SetX(FRom=>"jabber:foo.bar.com",
                replyTo=>"bob@jabber.org");

    $xTag->SetFrom("bob@jabber.org");
    $xTag->SetFromID("bob@jabber.org");

    $xTag->SetTo("bob@jabber.org");
    $xTag->SetToID("bob@jabber.org");

    $xTag->SetReplyTo("bob@jabber.org");
    $xTag->SetReplyToID("bob@jabber.org");

    $xTag->SetCC("bob@jabber.org");
    $xTag->SetCCID("bob@jabber.org");

    $xTag->SetForwardedBy("bob@jabber.org");
    $xTag->SetForwardedByID("bob@jabber.org");

METHODS

Retrieval functions

  GetFrom() - returns a string with the Jabber Identifier of the 
              person who added the ident.

  GetStamp() - returns a string that represents the time stamp of
               the ident.

  GetMessage() - returns a string with the message that describes
                 the nature of the ident.

  GetXMLNS() - returns a string with the namespace of the query that
               the <iq/> contains.

Creation functions

  SetX(from=>string,       - set multiple fields in the <x/> at one
       stamp=>string,        time.  This is a cumulative and over
       message=>string)      writing action.  If you set the "from"
                             attribute twice, the second setting is
                             what is used.  If you set the status, and
                             then set the priority then both will be in
                             the <x/> tag.  For valid settings read the
                             specific Set functions below.

  SetFrom(string) - sets the from attribute of the server adding the
                    ident.

  SetStamp(string) - sets the timestamp of the ident.  If the string is
                     left blank then the module adds the current date/time
                     in the proper format as the stamp.

  SetMessage(string) - sets description of the ident.
