in reply to Issue with time() in loop?

Other than what others have already pointed out, I doubt that you need thread. My guess is that the reason you use thread, is to monitor multiple sockets at the same time. A better idea is to use IO::Select.

The following code demoes this. Just run one instance of the server and two instances of the client. Observe how the server receives messages from both clients without threading.


use strict; use warnings; use IO::Select; use IO::Socket::INET; my $server = IO::Socket::INET->new(Proto => "tcp", LocalAddr => "local +host", LocalPort => 3000, Listen => 10); my $selector = IO::Select->new(); { my $connection = $server->accept(); print "First client connected\n"; $selector->add($connection); } { my $connection = $server->accept(); print "Second client connected\n"; $selector->add($connection); } while (1) { for my $reader ($selector->can_read()) { my $line = <$reader>; print $line; } }


use strict; use warnings; use IO::Socket::INET; use IO::Select; my $connection = IO::Socket::INET->new(PeerAddr => "localhost", PeerPo +rt => 3000, Proto => "tcp"); for (1 .. 100) { print $connection "$_\n"; sleep(1); }
