Net::AMQP::Protocol(3) Loading code of the AMQP spec


This class serves as a loader for the auto-generated classes of the protocol.



Returns a binary string representing the header of any AMQP communications


Pass in the XML filename. Reads in the AMQP XML specifications file, XML document node <amqp>, and generates subclasses of Net::AMQP::Protocol::Base for each frame type.

Names are normalized, as demonstrated by this example:

  <class name='basic'>
    <method name='consume-ok'>
      <field name='consumer tag'>

creates the class Net::AMQP::Protocol::Basic::ConsumeOk with the field accessor "consumer_tag()", allowing you to create a new object as such:

  my $method = Net::AMQP::Protocol::Basic::ConsumeOk->new(
      consumer_tag => 'blah'
  print $method->consumer_tag() . "\n";
  if ($method->class_id == 60 && $method->method_name == 21) {
    # do something


  Net::AMQP::Protocol->full_docs_to_dir($dir, $format);

Using the dynamically generated classes, this will create 'pod' or 'pm' files in the target directory in the following format:

  (or with format 'pm')

The directory will be created if it doesn't exist.
