RPC::XML - An implementation of XML-RPC Version: 0.53 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 Eliminated a warning under 5.00503 from t/40_server.t. Changes to the opening of files for base64 data to accomodate Perl 5.00503. The old way (passing an undef scalar as the first argument to open()) doesn't work in that version. Added a one-byte offset to the filehandle-length tests in the t/15_serialize.t suite to account for Win-ish systems. Forgot to tag an newly-opened filehandle with binmode() at one point in the base64 support within RPC::XML.
