Device::Gsm::Pdu(3)   User Contributed Perl Documentation  Device::Gsm::Pdu(3)

NAME
       Device::Gsm::Pdu	- library to manage PDU	encoded	data for GSM messaging

WARNING
	  This is C<BETA> software, still needs	extensive testing and
	  support for custom GSM commands, so use it at	your own risk,
	  and without C<ANY> warranty! Have fun.

NOTICE
	   This	module is meant	to be used internally by C<Device::Gsm>	class,
	   so you probably do not want to use it directly.

SYNOPSIS
	 use Device::Gsm::Pdu;

	 # DA is destination address
	 $DA = Device::Gsm::Pdu::encode_address('+39347101010');
	 $number = Device::Gsm::Pdu::decode_address( $DA );

	 # Encode 7 bit	text to	send messages
	 $text = Device::Gsm::Pdu::encode_text7('hello');

DESCRIPTION
       "Device::Gsm::Pdu" module includes a few	basic functions	to deal	with
       SMS in PDU mode,	such as	encoding GSM addresses (phone numbers) and,
       for now only, 7 bit text.

FUNCTIONS
   decode_address( pdu_encoded_address )
       Takes a PDU encoded address and decodes into human-readable mobile
       number.	If number type is international, result	will be	prepended with
       a `+' sign.

       Clearly,	it is intended as an internal function.

       Example

	   print Device::Gsm::Pdu::decode_address( '0B919343171010F0' );
	   # prints `+39347101010';

   encode_address( mobile_number )
       Takes a mobile number and encodes it as DA (destination address).  If
       it begins with a	`+', as	in `+39328101010', it is treated as an
       international number.

       Example

	   print Device::Gsm::Pdu::encode_address( '+39347101010' );
	   # prints `0B919343171010F0'

   encode_text7( text_string )
       Encodes some text ASCII string in 7 bits	PDU format, including a	header
       byte which tells	the length is septets. This is the only	100% supported
       mode to encode text.

       Example

	   print Device::Gsm::Pdu::encode_text7( 'hellohello' );
	   # prints `0AE832...'

   pdu_to_latin1($pdu)
       Converts	a PDU (without the initial length octet) into a	latin1 string.

       Example

	   my $pdu = 'CAFA9C0E0ABBDF7474590E8296E56C103A3C5E97E5';
	   print Device::Gsm::Pdu::pdu_to_latin1($pdu);
	   # prints `Just another Perl hacker'

   latin1_to_pdu($text)
       Converts	a text string in latin1	encoding (ISO-8859-1) into a PDU
       string.

       Example

	   my $text = "Just another Perl hacker";
	   print Device::Gsm::Pdu::latin1_to_pdu($text);
	   # prints `CAFA9C0E0ABBDF7474590E8296E56C103A3C5E97E5'
