NAME

Perlbal::Control - Simple class to manage perlbal

SYNOPSIS

    use Perlbal::Control;

    my ($command) = @ARGV;
    
    my $ctl = Perlbal::Control->new(
        config_file => [qw[ conf perlbal.conf ]],
        # PID file can also be discovered automatically 
        # from the conf, or if you prefer you can specify
        pid_file    => 'perlbal.pid',    
    );
  
    $ctl->start if lc($command) eq 'start';
    $ctl->stop  if lc($command) eq 'stop';

DESCRIPTION

This is a fork of Lighttpd::Control to work with Perlbal, it maintains 100% API compatibility. In fact most of this documentation was stolen too. This is an early release with only the bare bones functionality needed, future releases will surely include more functionality. Suggestions and crazy ideas welcomed, especially in the form of patches with tests.
