in reply to An introduction to POE

Worked fine for me on Linux. My only recomendation would be to import CRLF() from IO::Socket

use IO::Socket qw(:crlf); local $/ = CRLF; # Cygwin, Linux, Mac, Winders, all
Or just use the CRLF() constant instead of $/ when you print. Here is a quote from Dr. Stein's Network Progamming With Perl:
When communicating with a line-oriented network server that uses CRLF to terminate lines, it won't be possible to set $/ to \r\n. Use the explicit string \015\012 instead. To make this less obscure, the Socket and IO::Socket modules ... have an option to export globals named $CRLF and CRLF() that return the correct values.
(it is very easy to get the \r\n combo backwards ;))

    In this case, there really is no "backwards". I really wanted a carriage return and a line feed, the order wasn't important.

    But thanks for the portability hints.
