connect

See the current Perl documentation for connect.

Here is our local, out-dated (pre-5.6) version:


connect - connect to a remove socket



connect SOCKET,NAME



Attempts to connect to a remote socket, just as the connect system call does. Returns TRUE if it succeeded, FALSE otherwise. NAME should be a packed address of the appropriate type for the socket. See the examples in Sockets: Client/Server Communication.
