NAME

     IO::Socket::UNIX - Object interface for AF_UNIX domain sock-
     ets

SYNOPSIS

         use IO::Socket::UNIX;

DESCRIPTION

     "IO::Socket::UNIX" provides an object interface to creating
     and using sockets in the AF_UNIX domain. It is built upon
     the IO::Socket interface and inherits all the methods
     defined by IO::Socket.

CONSTRUCTOR

     new ( [ARGS] )
         Creates an "IO::Socket::UNIX" object, which is a refer-
         ence to a newly created symbol (see the "Symbol" pack-
         age). "new" optionally takes arguments, these arguments
         are in key-value pairs.

         In addition to the key-value pairs accepted by
         IO::Socket, "IO::Socket::UNIX" provides.

             Type        Type of socket (eg SOCK_STREAM or SOCK_DGRAM)
             Local       Path to local fifo
             Peer        Path to peer fifo
             Listen      Create a listen socket

         If the constructor is only passed a single argument, it
         is assumed to be a "Peer" specification.

          NOTE NOTE NOTE NOTE NOTE NOTE NOTE NOTE NOTE NOTE NOTE NOTE

         As of VERSION 1.18 all IO::Socket objects have autoflush
         turned on by default. This was not the case with earlier
         releases.

          NOTE NOTE NOTE NOTE NOTE NOTE NOTE NOTE NOTE NOTE NOTE NOTE

METHODS

     hostpath()
         Returns the pathname to the fifo at the local end

     peerpath()
         Returns the pathanme to the fifo at the peer end
