AH! Thanks - I am learning - did not know about
"This generates a SIGPIPE signal, whose default handler action is to abort the program (assuming you're on Unix)"
Yes, UNIX, is there any other OS?
I will check for that out. Try to catch it.
why $? = 0 = success on abort?
why an abort after> a successful write to the socket? - the device was updated AOK.
thanks other suggestions - I do have debug statements around the spot where it seems to quit - again they must have been executed but the output does not appear! I assume that if it is an abort, the output buffer is not written???
correction: using IO::Socket
