[Spread-users] Spread Perl Modules Usage Help

I personally wouldn't use Spread.pm directly. There are several very good modules on CPAN that encapsulate this module and provide nicer api's. I am partial to my own Spread::Messaging, which has several examples on how to use it.

I used this module in a production environment for several months without any problems. It may work equally well for your needs. If not, I would investigate the other modules to see if they meet your needs.

The documentation for Spread.pm seems pretty lax on providing anything useful other than joining a group.

Anyone here using this module could provide an example of how to receive all members in a group? What's documented in the C API does not corelate very well to the Perl module thanks.

This is basically all which is stated in the documentation:

 # Receive messages (see spread's man pages for more description)
  my($service_type, $sender, $groups, $mess_type, $endian, $message) =
I get null values for these varibles when calling Spread::Receive($mbox).
