Net::Z3950::ZOOM(3)   User Contributed Perl Documentation  Net::Z3950::ZOOM(3)

NAME
       Net::Z3950::ZOOM	- Perl extension for invoking the ZOOM-C API.

SYNOPSIS
	use Net::Z3950::ZOOM;
	$conn =	Net::Z3950::ZOOM::connection_new($host,	$port);
	$errcode = Net::Z3950::ZOOM::connection_error($conn, $errmsg, $addinfo);
	Net::Z3950::ZOOM::connection_option_set($conn, databaseName => "foo");
	# etc.

DESCRIPTION
       This module provides a simple thin-layer	through	to the ZOOM-C
       functions in the	YAZ toolkit for	Z39.50 and SRW/U communication.	 You
       should not be using this	very nasty, low-level API.  You	should be
       using the "ZOOM"	module instead,	which implements a nice, Perlish API
       on top of this module, conformant to the	ZOOM Abstract API described at
       http://zoom.z3950.org/api/

       To enforce the don't-use-this-module prohibition, I am not even going
       to document it.	If you really, really, really want to use it, then it
       pretty much follows the API described in	the ZOOM-C documentation at
       http://www.indexdata.dk/yaz/doc/zoom.tkl

       The only	additional (non-ZOOM-C)	function provided by this module is
       "event_str()", which takes as its argument an event code	such as
       "Net::Z3950::ZOOM::EVENT_SEND_APDU", and	returns	a corresponding	short
       string.

SEE ALSO
       The "ZOOM" module, included in the same distribution as this one.
