NAME

Net::FTP::dataconn - FTP Client data connection class

SYNOPSIS

# Perform IO operations on an FTP client data connection object:

$num_bytes_read = $obj->read($buffer, $size);
$num_bytes_read = $obj->read($buffer, $size, $timeout);

$num_bytes_written = $obj->write($buffer, $size);
$num_bytes_written = $obj->write($buffer, $size, $timeout);

$num_bytes_read_so_far = $obj->bytes_read();

$obj->abort();

$closed_successfully = $obj->close();

DESCRIPTION

Some of the methods defined in Net::FTP return an object which will be derived from this class. The dataconn class itself is derived from the IO::Socket::INET class, so any normal IO operations can be performed. However the following methods are defined in the dataconn class and IO should be performed using these.

read($buffer, $size[, $timeout])

Read $size bytes of data from the server and place it into $buffer, also performing any <CRLF> translation necessary. $timeout is optional, if not given, the timeout value from the command connection will be used.

Returns the number of bytes read before any <CRLF> translation.

write($buffer, $size[, $timeout])

Write $size bytes of data from $buffer to the server, also performing any <CRLF> translation necessary. $timeout is optional, if not given, the timeout value from the command connection will be used.

Returns the number of bytes written before any <CRLF> translation.

bytes_read()

Returns the number of bytes read so far.

abort()

Abort the current data transfer.

close()

Close the data connection and get a response from the FTP server. Returns true if the connection was closed successfully and the first digit of the response from the server was a '2'.

EXPORTS

None.

KNOWN BUGS

None.
