=head1 NAME

POE::Component::Connection::Keepalive - a wheel wrapper around a kept-alive socket

=head1 VERSION

version 0.272


  See the SYNOPSIS for POE::Component::Client::Keepalive for a
  complete working example.

  my $connection = $response->{connection};
  $heap->{connection} = $connection;

  $connection->start( InputEvent => "got_input" );

  delete $heap->{connection};  # When done with it.


POE::Component::Connection::Keepalive is a helper class for
POE::Component::Client::Keepalive.  It wraps managed sockets,
providing a few extra features.

Connection objects free their underlying sockets when they are
DESTROYed.  This eliminates the need to explicitly free sockets when
you are done with them.

Connection objects manage POE::Wheel::ReadWrite objects internally,
saving a bit of effort.

=over 2

=item new

Creates a new POE::Component::Connection::Keepalive instance.  It
accepts two parameters: A socket handle (socket) and a reference to a
POE::Component::Client::Keepalive object to manage the socket when the
connection is destroyed.

  my $conn = POE::Component::Connection::Keepalive->new(
    socket  => $socket_handle,
    manager => $poe_component_client_keepalive,

new() is usually called by a POE::Component::Client::Keepalive object.

=item start

Starts a POE::Wheel::ReadWrite object.  All parameters except Handle
for start() are passed directly to POE::Wheel::ReadWrite's
constructor.  Handle is provided by the connection object.  start()
returns a reference to the new POE::Wheel::ReadWrite object, but it is
not necessary to save a copy of that wheel.  The connection object
keeps a copy of the reference internally, so the wheel will persist as
long as the connection does.  The POE::Wheel::ReadWrite object will be
DESTROYed when the connection object is.

  # Asynchronous connection from Client::Keepalive.
  sub handle_connection {
    my $connection_info = $_[ARG0];
    $_[HEAP]->{connection} = $connection_info->{connection};

      InputEvent => "got_input",
      ErrorEvent => "got_error",

  # Stop the connection (and the wheel) when an error occurs.
  sub handle_error {
    delete $_[HEAP]->{connection};

=item wheel

Returns a reference to the internal POE::Wheel::ReadWrite object, so
that methods may be called upon it.


=item close

Closes the connection immediately. Calls shutdown_input() and
shutdown_output() on the wheel also.
