NAME

Net::Server::MultiType - Net::Server personality  

SYNOPSIS

  use Net::Server::MultiType;
  @ISA = qw(Net::Server::MultiType);

  sub process_request {
     #...code...
  }

  my @types = qw(PreFork Fork Single);

  Net::Server::MultiType->run(server_type=>\@types);

 

DESCRIPTION

Please read the pod on Net::Server first. This module is a personality, or extension, or sub class, of the Net::Server module.

This personality is intended to allow for easy use of multiple Net::Server personalities. Given a list of server types, Net::Server::MultiType will require one at a time until it finds one that is installed on the system. It then adds that package to its @ISA, thus inheriting the methods of that personality.  

ARGUMENTS

In addition to the command line arguments of the Net::Server base class, Net::Server::MultiType contains one other configurable parameter.

  Key               Value            Default
  server_type       'server_type'    'Single'

server_type
May be called many times to build up an array or possible server_types. At execution, Net::Server::MultiType will find the first available one and then inherit the methods of that personality
