       Net::Jabber::Server - Jabber Server Library

	 Net::Jabber::Server is	a module that provides a developer easy	access
	 to developing applications that need an embedded Jabber server.

DESCRIPTION seeks to provide enough high	level APIs and automation of
	 the low level APIs that writing and spawning a	Jabber Server in Perl
	 is trivial.  For those	that wish to work with the low level you can
	 do that too, but those	functions are covered in the documentation for
	 each module.

	 Net::Jabber::Server provides functions	to run a full Jabber server that
	 accepts incoming connections and delivers packets to external Jabber
	 servers.  You can use all or none of the functions, there is no requirement.

	 For more information on how the details for how Net::Jabber is	written
	 please	see the	help for Net::Jabber itself.

	 For a full list of high level functions available please see

   Basic Functions
	   use Net::Jabber qw(Server);

	   $Server = new Net::Jabber::Server();


	   %status = $Server->Process();
	   %status = $Server->Process(5);


   Basic Functions
	   new(debuglevel=>0|1|2, - creates the	Server object.	debugfile
	       debugfile=>string,   should be set to the path for the debug
	       debugtime=>0|1)	    log	to be written.	If set to "stdout"
				    then the debug will	go there.  debuglevel
				    controls the amount	of debug.  For more
				    information	about the valid	setting	for
				    debuglevel,	debugfile, and debugtime see

	   Start(hostname=>string, - starts the	server listening on the	proper
		 jaberxml=>string)   ports.  hostname is a quick way of	telling
				     the server	the hostname to	listen on.
				     jabberxml defines the path	to a different
				     jabberd configuration file	(default is

	   Process(integer) - takes the	timeout	period as an argument.	If no
			      timeout is listed	then the function blocks until
			      a	packet is received.  Otherwise it waits	that
			      number of	seconds	and then exits so your program
			      can continue doing useful	things.	 NOTE: This is
			      important	for GUIs.  You need to leave time to
			      process GUI commands even	if you are waiting for
			      packets.	The following are the possible return
			      values for each hash entry, and what they	mean:

				  1   -	Status ok, data	received.
				  0   -	Status ok, no data received.
				undef -	Status not ok, stop processing.

			      IMPORTANT: You need to check the output of every
			      Process.	If you get an undef then the connection
			      died and you should behave accordingly.

	   Stop() - stops the server from running and shuts down all sub programs.
