( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

ok, so I have the solution and I'm pleased to say that it works. Next time I'll try to remember to RTFS.

It makes me think, though, that the interface is slightly broken. To construct an object of the class correctly, it needs to pass a named attribute X to a base class. You can't, however, pass the X attribute to the new() method directly, only X2 is allowed.

I read the Net::SMTP pod, and no mention is made of the Port attribute (which is sort of to be expected). So from there I followed the chain of pod to Net::Cmd, IO::Handle, IO::Socket and IO::Socket::INET, which is where I finally found a mention a mention of PeerPort. In the first instance I was using Peer_Port, which didn't work, so when I came across this, I was sure it would work.

So what really needs to happen is the line PeerPort => $arg{Port} || 'smtp(25)',

...needs to be written as...

PeerPort => $arg{PeerPort} || $arg{Port} || 'smtp(25)',

and that way it will work regardless. I'll see what gbarr think about this :)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
