DESCRIPTIONThis module will spawn a poe session responsible for low-level communication with mpd. It is written as a POE::Component::Client::TCP, which is taking care of everything needed.
Note that you're not supposed to use this class directly: it's one of the helper class for POE::Component::Client::MPD.
hostThe hostname of the mpd server. Mandatory, no default.
portThe port of the mpd server. Mandatory, no default.
idThe POE session id of the peer to dialog with. Mandatory, no default.
max_retriesHow much time to attempt reconnection before giving up. Defaults to 5.
retry_waitHow much time to wait (in seconds) before attempting socket reconnection. Defaults to 2.
my $id = POE::Component::Client::MPD::Connection->spawn( \%params );This method will create a POE::Component::Client::TCP session responsible for low-level communication with mpd.
It will return the poe id of the session newly created.
PUBLIC EVENTS ACCEPTED
disconnect( )Request the pococm-connection to be shutdown. This does not shut down the MPD server. No argument.
send( $message )Request pococm-conn to send the $message over the wires. Note that this request is a POE::Component::Client::MPD::Message object properly filled up, and that the "_commands()" attribute should not be newline terminated.
PUBLIC EVENTS FIREDThe following events are fired from the spawned session.
mpd_connected( $version )Fired when the session is connected to a mpd server. This event isn't fired when the socket connection takes place, but when the session has checked that remote peer is a real mpd server. $version is the advertised mpd server version.
mpd_connect_error_fatal( $errstr )Fired when the session encounters a fatal error. This happens either when the session is connected to a server which happens to be something else than a mpd server, or if there was more than "max_retries" (see "spawn()" params) connection retries in a row. $errstr will contain the problem encountered. No retries will be done.
mpd_connect_error_retriable( $errstr )Fired when the session has troubles connecting to the server. $errstr will point the faulty syscall that failed. Re-connection will be tried after $retry_wait seconds (see "spawn()" params).
mpd_data( $msg )Fired when $msg has been sent over the wires, and mpd server has answered with success. The actual output should be looked up in "$msg-"_data>.
mpd_disconnected( )Fired when the socket has been disconnected for whatever reason. Note that this event is not fired in the case of a programmed shutdown (see "disconnect()" event above). A reconnection will be automatically re-tried after $retry_wait (see "spawn()" params).
mpd_error( $msg, $errstr )Fired when $msg has been sent over the wires, and mpd server has answered with the error message $errstr.
