in reply to Socket programming

Looks like your mistake is using the accept method in your client.

Don't do that.

(c8=

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use IO::Socket; # create a tcp connection to the specified host and port $client = IO::Socket::INET->new( Proto => "tcp", PeerAddr => 'localhost', PeerPort => '6969' ), or die "can't connect to server: $!"; print "[Client $0 connected to server]\n"; print $client "READY\n"; # as a client, you are not accepting connections # while ($server = $client->accept()) { # listen on and talk into your open socket instead while (<$client>) { if (/GO/i) { srand; # seed the random number function $num = int (rand 4); # get a random integer, 1 through 104 if ($num == 1) { print $client "Rock\n"; } elsif ($num == 2) { print $client "Paper\n"; } elsif ($num == 3) { print $client "Scissors\n"; } } if (/STOP/i) { last; } } close $client;
