|new ( [ARGS] )||
Creates an IO::Socket::INET6 object, which is a reference to a
newly created symbol (see the Symbol package). new
optionally takes arguments, these arguments are in key-value pairs.
If Listen is defined then a listen socket is created, else if the socket type, which is derived from the protocol, is SOCK_STREAM then connect() is called.
Although it is not illegal, the use of MultiHomed on a socket which is in non-blocking mode is of little use. This is because the first connect will never fail with a timeout as the connect call will not block.
The PeerAddr can be a hostname, the IPv6-address on the 2001:800:40:2a05::10 form , or the IPv4-address on the 18.104.22.168 form. The PeerPort can be a number or a symbolic service name. The service name might be followed by a number in parenthesis which is used if the service is not known by the system. The PeerPort specification can also be embedded in the PeerAddr by preceding it with a :, and closing the IPv6 address on brackets  if necessary: 124.678.12.34:23,[2a05:345f::10]:23,any.server.com:23.
If Domain is not given, AF_UNSPEC is assumed, that is, both AF_INET and AF_INET6 will be both considered when resolving DNS names. AF_INET6 has priority. If you guess you are in trouble not reaching the peer,(the service is not available via AF_INET6 but AF_INET) you can either try Multihomed (try any address/family until reach) or concrete your address family (AF_INET, AF_INET6).
If Proto is not given and you specify a symbolic PeerPort port, then the constructor will try to derive Proto from the service name. As a last resort Proto tcp is assumed. The Type parameter will be deduced from Proto if not specified.
If the constructor is only passed a single argument, it is assumed to be a PeerAddr specification.
If Blocking is set to 0, the connection will be in nonblocking mode. If not specified it defaults to 1 (blocking mode).
Suppose either you have no IPv6 connectivity or www.perl.org has no http service on IPv6. Then,
(Trying all address/families until reach)
(Concrete to IPv4 protocol)
As of VERSION 1.18 all IO::Socket objects have autoflush turned on by default. This was not the case with earlier releases.
accept () See IO::Socket::INET. bind () See IO::Socket::INET. configure () This function exists in this module, but I (= Shlomi Fish) dont know what it does, or understand it. Its also not tested anywhere. Ill be happy to be enlightened. connect () See IO::Socket::INET. sockaddr () Return the address part of the sockaddr structure for the socket sockdomain() Returns the domain of the socket - AF_INET or AF_INET6 or whatever. sockport () Return the port number that the socket is using on the local host sockhost () Return the address part of the sockaddr structure for the socket in a text form (2001:800:40:2a05::10 or 245.245.13.27) sockflow () Return the flow information part of the sockaddr structure for the socket sockscope () Return the scope identification part of the sockaddr structure for the socket peeraddr () Return the address part of the sockaddr structure for the socket on the peer host peerport () Return the port number for the socket on the peer host. peerhost () Return the address part of the sockaddr structure for the socket on the peer host in a text form (2001:800:40:2a05::10 or 245.245.13.27) peerflow () Return the flow information part of the sockaddr structure for the socket on the peer host peerscope () Return the scope identification part of the sockaddr structure for the socket on the peer host
