IO::Socket::INET -- jettero verses non-blocking in windowsby jettero (Monsignor)
|on Jul 30, 2004 at 13:26 UTC||Need Help??|
jettero has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
My question is almost identical to the question asked in node #292856 -- but still slightly different. I wish to build a non-blocking socket. Apparently you can't in ActivePerl 5.8.3?
I refuse to accept that. I have tried these two methods (which both work great at home in my lunix):
That returns the unhelpful error "socket is dumb: at line something something."
I seem to get an error from this at least -- assuming I skip the "Blocking => 0" above.
It reports that my vendor has not defined F_SETFL.
(Sorry in advance, I searched a lot and didn't find much, but I can't imagine this hasn't been asked before.)
