Hello monks, I would like to create a simple chat box. I am new to the server side programming of perl. How shall I proceed?

    I'd use Google with search terms like 'perl chat application source' and look at the first few entries. Perhaps follow it up with 'perl client server example'. A little searching can go a long way.


    When your only tool is a hammer, all problems look like your thumb.

    How shall I proceed?
    I'll give you the first few lines:
    #!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use autodie; use 5.010;
    Feel free to come back once you have more specific questions.
