sri has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi Monks,

IO::Poll is driving me nuts, i just don't get it running, and the only example i can find is a very small client in Network Programming with Perl by Lincoln D. Stein.

Hope i've missed some, or maybe someone here can give me a server example.

For those who don't know IO::Poll, it's similar to IO::Select but uses an array struct instead of a vector to store filehandles, so it can handle much more filehandles.

    As the man page for IO::Poll says, it is just a wrapper for poll(2), so it may pay to look into Unix/Linux docs in the call. For instance, the Unix FAQ has a poll example.
