IOMux::Pipe::Read - read from an external command


   is an IOMux::Handler::Read
   is an IOMux::Handler


  my $mux = IOMux::Select->new;  # or ::Poll

  use IOMux::Open '-|';
  my $pipe = $mux->open('-|', $command, @cmd_options);

  use IOMux::Pipe::Read;
  my $pipe = IOMux::Pipe::Read->new
    ( command => [$command, @cmd_options] );

  $pipe->getline(sub {print "$_[0]\n"});


In an event driven program, reading is harder to use than writing: the
read will very probably be stalled until data has arrived, so you will
need a callback to handle the resulting data.

=item IOMux::Pipe::Read-E<gt>B<bare>(%options)

Creates a pipe, but does not start a process (yet). Used by
L<IOMux::IPC|IOMux::IPC>, which needs three pipes for one process. Returned
is not only a new pipe object, but also a write handle to be
connected to the other side.

All %options which are available to L<IOMux::Handler::Read::new()|IOMux::Handler::Read/"Constructors">
can be used here as well.

=item command => COMMAND|ARRAY

The external command to be executed. Either the COMMAND needs to
parameters, or you need to pass an ARRAY of the command name and
all its parameters.

=item fh => FILEHANDLE

=item name => STRING

=item read_size => INTEGER


=item IOMux::Pipe::Read-E<gt>B<open>( $mode, <$cmd, $cmdopts>|<$cmdarray, %options> )

Open the pipe to read. $mode is always C<< -| >>.  When you need to
pass additional %options to the implied L<new()|IOMux::Pipe::Read/"Constructors">, then you must use
an ARRAY for command name and its optional parameters.


  my $mux = IOMux::Poll->new;
  $mux->open('-|', 'who', '-H');  # no opts
  $mux->open('-|', ['who', '-H'], %opts);
  $mux->open('-|', 'who');        # no opts
  $mux->open('-|', ['who'], %opts);
