RPC::XML - An implementation of XML-RPC Version: 0.44 WHAT IS IT The RPC::XML package is an implementation of XML-RPC. The module provides classes for sample client and server implementations, a server designed as an Apache location-handler, and a suite of data-manipulation classes that are used by them. USING RPC::XML There are not any pre-packaged executables in this distribution (except for a utility tool). Client usage will usually be along the lines of: use RPC::XML::Client; ... my $client = new RPC::XML::Client 'http://www.oreillynet.com/meerkat/xml-rpc/server.php'; my $req = RPC::XML::request->new('meerkat.getChannelsBySubstring', 'perl'); my $res = $client->send_request($req); # This returns an object of the RPC::XML::response class. This double-call # of value() first gets a RPC::XML::* data object from the response, then # the actual data from it: my $value = $res->value->value; Running a simple server is not much more involved: use RPC::XML::Server; ... my $srv = new RPC::XML::Server (host => 'localhost', port => 9000); # You would then use $srv->add_method to add some remotely-callable code ... $srv->accept_loop; # Stays in an accept/connect loop BUILDING/INSTALLING This package is set up to configure and build like a typical Perl extension. To build: perl Makefile.PL make && make test If RPC::XML passes all tests, then: make install You may need super-user access to install. PROBLEMS/BUG REPORTS Please send any reports of problems or bugs to firstname.lastname@example.org SEE ALSO XML-RPC: http://www.xmlrpc.com/spec The Artistic License: http://language.perl.com/misc/Artistic.html CHANGES Cleaned up the exports list in RPC::XML.pm, which still had remnants from when this package was intended to extend XML-RPC. There were no routines to match the symbols, but the potential for error was there. Fixed a typo in the docs for RPC::XML::Client, and some documentation goofs in RPC::XML::Server (regarding the timeout method/option). A few doc fixes in RPC::XML::Procedure, for good measure. Implemented two fixes sent in by Marc Liyanage: a fix for setting the Content-Length headers on messages that takes the length in bytes rather than characters; the second is a fix around the compression support that makes certain an undef isn't evaluated against the regex. The above added an exported function to RPC::XML, so that got documented. In the process, it occurred to me to document the helper functions like RPC_BOOLEAN, RPC_DOUBLE, etc.
