in thread How to answer a UDP broadcast

You might want to consider using Net::UPnP for this task. Universal Plug and Play devices broadcast their existence and capabilities in UDP, advertising existing services (like web servers) and sending status messages. It seems exactly like what you are trying to do.

Oh, and each node broadcasts and listens on the same socket. Sorry, Trizor.

[1nickt]: But should handle month as number or word
[TCLion]: I am breaking down the line and putting the date in the correct order during output
[TCLion]: at least that's the plan
[1nickt]: Corion this looks good, from the pod: "there are 9000+ variations that are detected correctly in the test files (see t/data/* for most of them). If you can think of any that I do not cover, please let me know."
[TCLion]: some moron put the date like this : Mon Feb 20 09:31:30 2017
[Corion]: 1nickt: Yes, the module sounds promising indeed
[1nickt]: "putting the date in correct order" how?
[Corion]: TCLion: Whee ;)
[TCLion]: need to put like this : 2017-02-20 09:30:53
