SYNOPSIS

use Mojo::IOLoop::Client;

# Create socket connection
my $client = Mojo::IOLoop::Client->new;
$client->on(connect => sub {
  my ($client, $handle) = @_;
  ...
});
$client->on(error => sub {
  my ($client, $err) = @_;
  ...
});
$client->connect(address => 'example.com', port => 80);

# Start reactor if necessary
$client->reactor->start unless $client->reactor->is_running;

DESCRIPTION

Mojo::IOLoop::Client opens TCP connections for Mojo::IOLoop.

EVENTS

Mojo::IOLoop::Client inherits all events from Mojo::EventEmitter and can emit the following new ones.

  ...
});

Emitted if an error occurs on the connection, fatal if unhandled.

ATTRIBUTES

reactor

my $reactor = $client->reactor;
$client     = $client->reactor(Mojo::Reactor::Poll->new);

Low-level event reactor, defaults to the reactor attribute value of the global Mojo::IOLoop singleton.

connect

$client->connect(address => '127.0.0.1', port => 3000);

local_address
local_address => '127.0.0.1'

Local address to bind to.

port
port => 80

Port to connect to, defaults to 80 or 443 with tls option.

socks_address
socks_address => '127.0.0.1'

socks_port
socks_port => 9050

Port of SOCKS5 proxy server to use for connection.

socks_user
socks_user => 'sri'

timeout
timeout => 15

Maximum amount of time in seconds establishing connection may take before getting canceled, defaults to 10.
