Description:

I am trying to use IPX networking under perl and Linux but I have no clue how. Any ideas?

From what I can tell, it involves nothing more than replacing the calls to 'AF_INET' or 'PF_INET' inside of socket calls with 'AF_IPX' or 'PF_IPX'. I am unable to test that either way, but the 'Use Socket' call pulls its constants from the system's socket.h file, so look in there and check if the 2 IPX constants are defined (which they are for Linux and Solaris). I'm assuming here that this question is asked specifically concerning IPX, and not just networking in general. If I am incorrect in this assumption, let me know and I'll elaborate.

"use IPX under Perl and Linux ? "

Only at gunpoint. big grin

Seriously, I hope there's some reason why you HAVE to do this, otherwise is pretty much technological dead-end. And I even used to be a NetWare bigot.

    [Dumu]: got it. Anyway. Perl question. Can you use binmode more than once with an open filehandle to read a file first in binary mode, then in utf8 mode?
    [ambrus]: Dumu: you can use binmode multiple times, but mostly at the start before you read things. it would be strange to change the io layers after you've already read things, and might not work too well.
    [ambrus]: Dumu: why would you want to read the same file both in binary mode and utf8 mode?
    [Corion]: Dumu: Yes, but switching needs to be done with caution, as you might read half an UTF-8 character in binary mode, and then switch to utf8 mode...
    [Corion]: Personally, I would do the decoding of data in the program and not in the filehandle
    [Corion]: ambrus: Maybe a record-based file where some data is strings encoded as utf8
    [Corion]: But again, I would read all data as binary and then decode from utf8
    [ambrus]: Corion: that wouldn't be my guess, but I'll wait for Dumu
