( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I have a pretty large app (WinXP) that uses IO::Socket::SSL to send XML commands to a hardware device. I built a front-end to it in Tk, but when I press the connect button, the GUI freezes until the socket is opened, and all of the reply has been recieved from the device and the socket is closed. On subsequent connects, it takes less time. I am guessing that the problem is that the socket is blocking? So, I tried using a non-blocking example out of the Liddie Mastering Tk book...but I couldn't get it to work with SSL (arrgh) so I thought I would give POE a try. It works, but I have one really petty performance issue that I was wondering if anyone knew how to overcome... that being is their any way to speed this up or at least let me move the window while it is running? using ASPerl(5.80) POE(0.25) Tk(8.024) Here is a skeleton example:
use strict; use warnings; use Tk; use POE; use POE::Component::Client::HTTP::SSL; $|++; POE::Session->create( inline_states=> { _start => \&connect, send => \&send, get_input => \&get_input, listen => \&listen, }, ); $poe_kernel->run(); sub connect { my ($kernel,$heap,$session) = @_[KERNEL,HEAP,SESSION]; my $buf; my $mw = $poe_main_window; $heap->{txt} = $mw->Scrolled('Text',-width, 50,-height, 20,-scroll +bars, 'osoe')->pack(-fill,'both',-expand, 1); $mw->Button(-text, 'Run', -command, $session->postback("send"))->p +ack; $kernel->yield("listen"); } sub send { my ($kernel,$session,$heap) = @_[KERNEL,SESSION,HEAP]; tie( *SSL, "POE::Component::Client::HTTP::SSL", "", + "443") or warn "can't open socket\n"; if( \*SSL ){ $heap->{sock} = \*SSL; $heap->{sock}->print("GET http://index.htm \r\n"); $kernel->yield('listen'); } } sub get_input { my ($kernel,$heap) = @_[KERNEL,HEAP]; $kernel->yield('listen'); } sub listen { my ($kernel,$session,$heap) = @_[KERNEL,SESSION,HEAP]; if(defined $heap->{sock}){ my $buf; $heap->{sock}->blocking(0); $heap->{sock}->read($buf, 1024); $heap->{txt}->insert('end',$buf); } $kernel->yield('get_input'); }

Here is blocking example to show the difference:
use Net::SSLeay::Handle; use Tk; my $mw = tkinit; my $txt = $mw->Scrolled('Text', -width,50,-height,20, -scrollbars, 'os +oe')->pack(-fill,'both',-expand,1); $mw->Button(-text,'Run',-command, \&send)->pack; MainLoop; sub send { tie (*SSL, "Net::SSLeay::Handle", "", "443") or die + "error in tie\n"; if(\*SSL){ print SSL "GET http://index.html \r\n"; } while(my $buf = <SSL>){ $txt->insert('end',$buf); } }
Thanks in advance,

update (broquaint): added missing line of code
