Wiser Monks Than ITM might offer example code snippets or such, but here's my thoughts:

  1. check out Lincoln Stein's CPAN module IO-Socket-Multicast.
  2. run don't walk to FatBrain and order Network Programming With Perl, also by Lincoln Stein.   It has a whole chapter on multicasting.   (not at the Monastery bookstore yet)
Disclaimer: dunno how applicable the above stuff is to Windows.

Disclaimer: dunno how applicable the above stuff is to Windows.

As of May 2004, I'm afraid this still is not applicable to Windows. (Except maybe under Cygwin and/or if you compile your own Perl and the module?)

Anyway, the CPAN testers page doesn't show any Windows test, and the module doesn't seem to be available on Activestate's PPM module repository.

Too bad...
