( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I have a (server side) script that waits_for_messages in an infinite loop. When i run this script i get an error: Bad arg length for Socket::pack_sockaddr_in, length is 0, should be 4 at /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.5/i386-linux-thread-multi/Socket.pm line 373 and the script exits. Please tell what this means. And how to come out of this error. Thanks in Advance, Viki

    [sierpinski]: thanks LanX that helps
    [haukex]: the first index is always 0 - $#array gives you the last index in @array
    [sierpinski]: gotcha, thanks
    [LanX]: length = last index +1
