class IO::Socket::Async::ListenSocket

A tap for listening TCP sockets

class IO::Socket::Async::ListenSocket is Tap {}

IO::Socket::Async::ListenSocket is returned by the tap|/type/Supply#method_tap method when called on the Supply returned by calling the listen method of IO::Socket::Async, which represents a listening TCP socket:

my IO::Socket::Async::ListenSocket:D $server =
    IO::Socket::Async.listen(''0).tap(-> $peer {
        await $peer.print: "Hello. Goodbye!\r\n";
my (Str:D $hostInt:D $port= await $server.socket-host$server.socket-port;
say "The rude service is listening on $host:$port for the next 10 seconds...";
await{ $server.close });
say "I'm done now.";

Alternatively, by using the do prefix with whenever, you can also use it from within a react block:

react {
    my IO::Socket::Async::ListenSocket:D $server =
        do whenever IO::Socket::Async.listen(''0-> IO::Socket::Async:D $connection {
            await $connection.print: "Hello. Goodbye!\r\n";
            QUIT { $server.close.rethrow }
    # Use $server here somehow.

method socket-port

method socket-port(--> Promise)

Returns a Promise that will be kept with an Int|/type/Int containing the port of the listening socket.

method native-descriptor

method native-descriptor(--> Int)

Returns the corresponding file descriptor (SOCKET on Windows) for the listening socket.
