[JDEV] Proper use of Perl Net::Jabber calls

Hello jabber people.

I am hoping that someone can help me out with how the Perl Net::Jabber library should be used.  Note that I am also somewhat new to perl so if I get confused by some of the syntax, you will have to excuse me.  The examples in the Oreily book were rather helpful but I seem to be having problems in calling and receiving IQ information.

Here is what I am trying to send and receive in XML:

<iq id="jcl_9" type="get">
    <query xmlns="jabber:iq:roster"/>

<iq from='rebbaj at jabber.org/Perl' id='jcl_9' type='result'>
  <query xmlns='jabber:iq:roster'>
    <item jid='rebbaj at jabber.com' name='rebbaj' subscription='both'/>
    <item jid='rebbaj2 at jabber.com' name='rebbaj2' subscription='both'/>

The code stub that I have written to do this is as follows.  I suspect that I have the flow a bit wrong and I am not using the optimal calls to parse the resulting returned roster data...  Any help would be appreciated....


use Net::Jabber qw(Client);
use strict;
my $c=Net::Jabber::Client->new();
$c->Connect('hostname'=> 'jabber.org', 'port'=>5222);

$c->AuthSend('username'=> 'rebbaj',
      'password'=> 'secret',
      'resource'=> 'Perl');

$c->SetCallBacks('presence'=> \&handle_presence);
$c->SetCallBacks('iq'=> \&handle_iq);

My $IQ = new Net::Jabber::IQ();
$IQ->NewQuery("jabber:iq:roster");  # Does this actually make the IQ get request?$c->Send($IQ); # is this call necessary?

print "involking process\n";




sub handle_presence {
 my ($sid, $presence) = @_;

 my $show = $presence->GetShow() || 'online';
 print "presence packet received $show\n";

sub handle_iq {
 my ($sid, $iq) = @_;

 my $querytag = $iq->GetQuery();

 print "iq packet received $querytag\n";
