|new ( [ARGS] )||
Creates an IO::Socket::INET 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. If the Listen argument is given, but false, the queue size will be set to 5.
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 or the IP-address on the xx.xx.xx.xx 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 :.
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).
