NAME

Net::Write::Layer2 - object for a link layer (layer 2) descriptor

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



   use Net::Write::Layer2;

   my $desc = Net::Write::Layer2->new(
      dev => eth0,
   );

   $desc->open;
   $desc->send(Gx666);
   $desc->close;



DESCRIPTION

This is the class for creating a layer 2 descriptor.

ATTRIBUTES

<B>devB> The string specifying network interface to use.

Under Unix-like systems, this is in this format: \w+\d+ (example: eth0).

Under Windows systems, this is more complex; example: \Device\NPF_{0749A9BC-C665-4C55-A4A7-34AC2FBAB70F}

METHODS

<B>newB> Object constructor. You MUST pass a valid <B>devB> attribute. There is no default value.
<B>openB> Open the interface.
<B>sendB> (scalar) Send raw data to the network.
<B>closeB> Close the descriptor.

CAVEATS

Writing junk to loopback interface on BSD systems will not work.
