The output from a command run on the server needs to be sent to the client.

How would I make the client accept data sent by the server? need help

Well, generally, the client writes the request to the server, then waits for a response from the server. So, in the client:

print $server "FOO request\n"; my $response = <$server>; # or my $bytes_read = read($server, $response, 4192); # or whatever--basically, just read from the server
And the server accepts connections, reads the requests, handles them, then sends back data:
my $client = $server->accept; my $request = <$client>; # do something with the request # generate a response print $client $response; close $client;
This is very dumbed-down, but it gets across the general idea, I think. Is that what you were asking?
