Net::HL7::Connection - A HL7 connection
use Net::HL7::Connection; use Net::HL7::Request;
my $conn = new Net::HL7::Connection('localhost', 8089);
my $req = new Net::HL7::Request()
... set some request attributes
my $res = $conn->send($req);
The Net::HL7::Connection object represents the tcp connection to the HL7 message
broker. The Connection has only two useful methods (apart from the
constructor), send and close. The 'send' method takes a Net::HL7::Request as
argument, and returns a Net::HL7::Response. The send method can be used more
than once, before the connection is closed.
The Connection object holds the following fields:
- The prefix to be sent to the HL7 server to initiate the message. Defaults
- End of message signal for HL7 server. Defaults to \034\015.
The following methods are available:
- $c = new Net::HL7::Connection( $host,
$port[, Timeout = timeout] )> Creates a connection to a
HL7 server, or returns undef when a connection could not be established.
timeout is optional, and will default to 10 seconds.
- Sends a Net::HL7::Request object over this connection.
- Close the connection.
