In the past I've written some simple server/client programs using Java on a windows platform so I'm fairly certain I can use Perl style sockets to build a server and client. However all the info. I can find here in the Monastery, cpan and various cook books seems to concentrate on UNIX.
I'm still in the experimental stage and nothing is working yet can anyone give me a clue where to find some windows specific info. about setting up a server and client on the same machine.
I've been trying to use IO::Socket::INET is this the right road to follow?
