send

See the current Perl documentation for send.

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


send - send a message over a socket



send SOCKET,MSG,FLAGS,TO

send SOCKET,MSG,FLAGS



Sends a message on a socket. Takes the same flags as the system call of the same name. On unconnected sockets you must specify a destination to send TO, in which case it does a C sendto(). Returns the number of characters sent, or the undefined value if there is an error. See UDP: Message Passing for examples.

[moritz]: seems there's a size limit for hostenum, and the error message just sucks
[vrk]: None, other than the location of the error: auto/NetAddr/IP/ _splitref.al
[vrk]: Aha, there's a reference to "bug report 82719" in NetAddr/IP.pm's sub _splitref.
[moritz]: wow, that's their idea of an "improved error message"
