AF_UNSPEC sockets?

Colonel Stumps has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hello, I'm trying to connect to a server using AF_UNSPEC sockets. Basically what I'm trying to do is create a socket of the AF_UNSPEC type, send information to the server, then read some back from the server. However, I have yet to find anything that works with AF_UNSPEC sockets. Do any of thy honorable monnks have any ideas? I'm not able to provide any code or anything because I couldn't get anything close. I'm probably missing something really simple. Could thy monks help? Thanks.

    How many different varieties (color, size, etc) of socks do you have in your sock drawer?
