in reply to Net::IRC Connection times out

Hi Anonymous Monk.

IRC servers periodically send a 'PING' to clients that haven't been active for a period of time. In order to avoid a timeout, you need to send the response it is expecting (e.g. 'PONG').

Assuming you are reading from a socket and each line read is stored in a scalar named $input:
if ($input =~ /^PING(.*)$/i) { print $socket "PONG $1\r\n"; }


Hope this helps,
~Katie

[marto]: Eily, there's actually a lot of good discussion on the topic in the HN link choroba posted
[marto]: sorry for the late response, busy busy :/
[Corion]: I think you need to load Readline in the debugger, but I don't know how
[Corion]: Yay, invitation for a team-building workshop, with a team of 100 people :-/
[Eily]: marto after an additional read I started to see the light actually. And choroba's link was helpful as well :)
[Corion]: I'll send my colleague who doesn't yet know the people there, and I'll do production duty instead.
