in thread Timeout for an established connection

>What OS are you using?
Debian 2.6.32-5-amd64 #1 SMP Sun Sep 23 10:07:46 UTC 2012 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Maybe this is an error in the syntax? "setsockopt($sock, 6, 18, pack("QQ", 5, 0))"

>Hm. Makes me wonder why you are asking here, if you already have a solution?
Because this solution does not seem to me the best.

    That does look suspect to me.

    According to this (4th post), the parameter is the address of an int containing the timeout in milliseconds. Given you are on a 64-bit build I'd expect to use something like this in Perl:

    setsockopt( $sock, 6, 18, pack( "Q", 5000 ) )

    Or possibly:

    my $userTimeout = 5000; setsockopt( $sock, 6, 18, \$userTimeout );

    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.

    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
