Net::SNPP - Simple Network Pager Protocol Client
# Constructors $snpp = Net::SNPP->new('snpphost'); $snpp = Net::SNPP->new('snpphost', Timeout => 60);
This module is not complete, yet !
This module implements a client interface to the SNPP protocol, enabling a perl5 application to talk to SNPP servers. This documentation assumes that you are familiar with the SNPP protocol described in RFC1861.
A new Net::SNPP object must be created with the new method. Once this has been done, all SNPP commands are accessed through this object.
This example will send a pager message in one hour saying ``Your lunch is ready''
$snpp = Net::SNPP->new('snpphost');
$snpp->send( Pager => $some_pager_number, Message => "Your lunch is ready", Alert => 1, Hold => time + 3600, # lunch ready in 1 hour :-) ) || die $snpp->message;
Unless otherwise stated all methods return either a true or false value, with true meaning that the operation was a success. When a method states that it returns a value, failure will be returned as undef or an empty list.
