in reply to Winsock connect problem in perl!!!

Extremely easy to find.

Please reference this link to see the original question by Daniel Moree.

Perl socket problem I'm attempting to use a perl script to interface with my Visual Basic +6 program using Winsock. I've got my program setup to connect and works great if i connect to another winsock program, but it acts funny connecting to my perl script. The Perl code is below: #!c:/Perl/bin/Perl.exe use IO::Socket; $server = IO::Socket::INET->new(LocalAddr => '', LocalPort => '8777', Proto => 'tcp', Listen => 1, Reuse => 1); die "ERROR: $!\n" unless $server; print "Waiting on connections...\n"; while($client = $server->accept()){ print "Connection made, reading data...\n"; print <$client>; print "Connection closed...\n"; } $server->close(); All the program is supposed to do is open a socket on port 8777 for tc +p. Listen for any incomming connections then read the one line of data comming in. I've read on the internet and in my perl in a nutshell boo +k that the above code should work. But they all say the same thing. You must get the line of data and scan it for a character that lets the pe +rl script that the line is done. Problem is, when the script runs, i get +as far a connection made then it will do nothing until i close the VB Win +sock. Anyone got a reader for sockets that will know when to stop reading? I haven't found any examples on the internet on how to do it, just that everyone says it can be done. I'd really appreciate the help! Daniel Moree
