Why doesn't my sockets program work under System V (Solaris)? What does the error message "Protocol not supported" mean?

Current Perl documentation can be found at perldoc.perl.org.

Here is our local, out-dated (pre-5.6) version:

Some Sys-V based systems, notably Solaris 2.X, redefined some of the standard socket constants. Since these were constant across all architectures, they were often hardwired into perl code. The proper way to deal with this is to ``use Socket'' to get the correct values.

Note that even though SunOS and Solaris are binary compatible, these values are different. Go figure.

[LanX]: see soundfile https://en. wiktionary.org/ wiki/human# Pronunciation
[Your Mother]: Just Another Perl 'Acker.
[LanX]: I pronounce it 'juːmən'
[Your Mother]: Hey, let's not bring antisemitism into the conversation.
[LanX]: for centuries posh English speakers tried to approach French, that's where all the trouble starts
[Eily]: Just another Perl coeurs
[Eily]: (perl with hearts, 'Acker with a French accent is pronunced like coeurs)
[LanX]: IMHO 'ju' for 'u' happens in English where they can't pronounce the French u (or German )
[LanX]: and I'm sure I read that *hotel* used to be pronounced 'otel by the English upperclass
[Your Mother]: American English vowels are pretty lazy/mumbly in general.
