NAME
    POE::Component::AIO - Asynchronous Input/Output for POE

SYNOPSIS
     use POE qw( Component::AIO );

     ...

     aio_read( $fh, 0, 1024, $buffer, 0, $poco_aio->callback( 'open_done' ) );
 
     aio_read( $fh, 0, 1024, $buffer, 0, sub {
       ...
     } );

DESCRIPTION
     This component adds support for L<IO::AIO> use in POE

  EXAMPLE
      use POE;

      Foo->new();

      $poe_kernel->run();

      package Foo;

      use POE qw( Component::AIO );
      use Fcntl;

      use strict;
      use warnings;

      sub new {
          my $class = shift;

          my $self = bless( {}, $class );

          POE::Session->create(
              object_states => [
                  $self => [qw(
                      _start
                      _stop

                      open_done
                      read_done
                  )]
              ]
          );
    
          return $self;
      }

      sub _start {
          my $file = '/etc/passwd';
      
          aio_open( $file, O_RDONLY, 0, $poco_aio->callback( 'open_done', $file ) );
      }
  
      sub open_done {
          my ( $self, $session, $file, $fh ) = @_[ OBJECT, SESSION, ARG0, ARG1 ];
      
          unless ( defined $fh ) {
              die "aio open failed on $file: $!";
          }
      
          my $buffer = '';
          # read 1024 bytes from $fh
          aio_read( $fh, 0, 1024, $buffer, 0, $poco_aio->postback( 'read_done', \$buffer ) );
      }
  
      sub read_done {
          my ( $self, $buffer, $bytes ) = @_[ OBJECT, ARG0, ARG1 ];
  
          unless( $bytes > 0 ) {
              die "aio read failed: $!";
          }
      
          print $$buffer;
      }
  
      sub _stop {
          $poco_aio->shutdown();
      }

NOTES
    This module automaticly bootstraps itself on use(). $poco_aio is
    imported into your namespace for easy use. Just like $poe_kernel when
    using POE. There are two import options available: no_auto_bootstrap and
    no_auto_export.

    Example:

      use POE::Component::AIO { no_auto_bootstrap => 1, no_auto_export => 1 };

    Also, use of this modules' callback and postback methods are completely
    optional. They are included for convenience, but note that they don't
    work the same as the postback and callback methods from POE::Session.

METHODS
    new()
        Call this to get the singleton object, which is the same as
        $poco_aio. See the notes above. You do not need to call this unless
        you have disabled auto bootstrapping.

    shutdown()
        Stop the session used by this module.

    callback( $event [, $params ] )
        Returns a callback. Params are optional and are stacked before
        params passed to the callback at call time. This differs from
        POE::Session's callback because the params are not wrapped in array
        references. It uses the current session to latch the callback to. If
        you want to use another session, you can pass an array ref of the
        session id and event name as the event param.

        Examples:

          $cb = $poco_aio->callback( 'foo' );
          $cb = $poco_aio->callback( 'foo', $bar );
          $cb = $poco_aio->callback( [ $session->ID(), 'foo' ] );
          $cb = $poco_aio->callback( [ $session->ID(), 'foo' ], $bar );

    postback( $event [, $params ] );
        See the callback method. The only difference is that it uses a post
        instead of call
