NAME
       IO::Socket::UNIX - Object interface for AF_UNIX domain sockets

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 reference to a newly created symbol (see the "Symbol"
           package). "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
