Maybe this is an error in the syntax? "setsockopt($sock, 6, 18, pack("QQ", 5, 0))"
>Hm. Makes me wonder why you are asking here, if you already have a solution?
Because this solution does not seem to me the best.
Maybe this is an error in the syntax? setsockopt($sock, 6, 18, pack("QQ", 5, 0))
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 ) )
my $userTimeout = 5000;
setsockopt( $sock, 6, 18, \$userTimeout );
