sureshr has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I have an UDP application with no flow control and so, can't afford packet loss. It so happens that I tend to miss packets over time (though I have separate read threads, etc). So, is there a way in Perl, by which I can increase the socket buffer size (memory is not a problem for me)? I checked the Perl docs of IO::Socket::INET & it does'nt seem to have an obvious option for this.
ps: I would prefer not to re-compile Perl for this purpose (I think some header's #define can do this). I am Perl5.8 on win2k.
