Audio::MPD::Common::Status(3) class representing MPD status


version 2.003


The MPD server maintains some information on its current state. Those information can be queried with mpd modules. Some of those information are served to you as an Audio::MPD::Common::Status object.

An Audio::MPD::Common::Status object does not update itself regularly, and thus should be used immediately.

Note: one should never ever instantiate an Audio::MPD::Common::Status object directly - use the mpd modules instead.
