       Net::Z3950::ZOOM - Perl extension for invoking the ZOOM-C API.


        use Net::Z3950::ZOOM;
        $conn = Net::Z3950::ZOOM::connection_new($host, $port);
        $errcode = Net::Z3950::ZOOM::connection_error($conn, $errmsg, $addinfo);
        Net::Z3950::ZOOM::connection_option_set($conn, databaseName => "foo");
        # etc.


       This module provides a simple thin-layer through to the ZOOM-C functions in the YAZ
       toolkit for Z39.50 and SRW/U communication.  You should not be using this very nasty, low-
       level API.  You should be using the "ZOOM" module instead, which implements a nice,
       Perlish API on top of this module, conformant to the ZOOM Abstract API described at

       To enforce the don't-use-this-module prohibition, I am not even going to document it.  If
       you really, really, really want to use it, then it pretty much follows the API described
       in the ZOOM-C documentation at

       The only additional (non-ZOOM-C) function provided by this module is "event_str()", which
       takes as its argument an event code such as "Net::Z3950::ZOOM::EVENT_SEND_APDU", and
       returns a corresponding short string.


       The "ZOOM" module, included in the same distribution as this one.
