in reply to problem with reading from socket

You most likely have tried to use a "telnet" connection in PuTTY, which results in some control characters being sent when the connection is established. You need a raw connection. Select "Raw" instead of "Telnet" when you create the connection, or try this from a command prompt (assuming putty.exe is in your path or in the current directory):

putty -raw localhost 6699

Then it works.

Secondly, have you considered using the OO interface to sockets in Perl? In can clean up your code significantly:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use IO::Socket qw/:DEFAULT :crlf/; use FileHandle; use 5.014; my $port = 6699; my $server = IO::Socket::INET->new( Proto => 'tcp', LocalHost => 'localhost', LocalPort => $port, Listen => 1, Reuse => 1); die "Server setup failed: $!" unless $server; say "starting on port: $port..."; while (my $client = $server->accept()) { print $client "ready$CRLF"; local $/ = LF; # Be robust about accepting LF or CRLF endings on +input CLIENT: while (<$client>) { s/$CR?$LF//; # chomp CRLF or LF say "Client request: `$_'"; for ($_) { print $client "help!$CRLF" when /^help/; last CLIENT when 'quit'; } } say "Disconnected"; }

[LanX]: RonW: yes I think something like inline::Rperl would be great, but Will is AFAIK not interested to go that way
[james28909]: well now i am using a for /f delims= %i IN(yt-dl) do set var=%i & ffmpeg -i "%var%" -a:c mp3 output.mp3 & set var=
[james28909]: just to get around not being able to do yt-dl | ffmpeg
