NAME

Mojo::IOLoop::Client - Non-blocking TCP client

SYNOPSIS

  use Mojo::IOLoop::Client;

  # Create socket connection
  my $client = Mojo::IOLoop::Client->new;
  $client->on(connect => sub {
    my ($client, $handle) = @_;
    ...
  });
  $client->on(error => sub {
    my ($client, $err) = @_;
    ...
  });
  $client->connect(address => 'example.com', port => 80);

  # Start reactor if necessary
  $client->reactor->start unless $client->reactor->is_running;

DESCRIPTION

Mojo::IOLoop::Client opens TCP connections for Mojo::IOLoop.

EVENTS

Mojo::IOLoop::Client inherits all events from Mojo::EventEmitter and can emit the following new ones.

connect

  $client->on(connect => sub {
    my ($client, $handle) = @_;
    ...
  });

Emitted safely once the connection is established.

error

  $client->on(error => sub {
    my ($client, $err) = @_;
    ...
  });

Emitted safely if an error occurs on the connection.

ATTRIBUTES

Mojo::IOLoop::Client implements the following attributes.

reactor

  my $reactor = $client->reactor;
  $client     = $client->reactor(Mojo::Reactor::Poll->new);

Low level event reactor, defaults to the reactor attribute value of the global Mojo::IOLoop singleton.

METHODS

Mojo::IOLoop::Client inherits all methods from Mojo::EventEmitter and implements the following new ones.

connect

  $client->connect(address => '127.0.0.1', port => 3000);

These options are currently available:

address

Address or host name of the peer to connect to, defaults to localhost.

handle

Use an already prepared handle.

local_address

Local address to bind to.

port

Port to connect to.

timeout

Maximum amount of time in seconds establishing connection may take before getting canceled, defaults to 10.

tls
