Net::Hotline::PrivateChat is a simple class for storing and retrieving private chat information, You should never have to create your own Net::Hotline::PrivateChat objects when using Net::Hotline::Client. Getting and (to a lesser extent) setting attributes is all that should be necessary.


Creates a new Net::Hotline::PrivateChat object with the reference REF, userlist USERLIST, and subject SUBJECT, where REF is a number, USERLIST is a reference to a hash of Net::Hotline::User objects keyed by socket number, and SUBJECT is a string. Any missing arguments will be set to undef.


All the Net::Hotline::PrivateChat methods are simple attribute get/set routines. If given an argument, they set an attribute. In all cases, they return the current value of the attribute.

The private chat reference number.
The subject of the private chat.
The list of users in the private chat.
