in reply to Socket Server without forking?


Because for sending you forgot the \r\n, or simply \n.

print $client "Hello there\n";

    still doesn't work
      This worked! Now my question is, what text do i send back to the client so that if the client is a web browser, it will be able to display what i send back? Thanks in advance for your wisdom!
        You need to send an HTTP header and then a HTML page.

        But usually you really want to use an existing webserver and CGI.

        If you really need a pure perl web server, use HTTP::Server::Simple.
