in reply to Socket programming

If the client disconnects, then the while loop should terminate, because the next read will be an EOF. This code segment is obviously incomplete, and requires Oracle to execute. What happens if the client sends only a partial, or mal-constructed request? I would either add debug statements, or run in debug mode, to ensure it is hanging where you think it is hanging. Also, be sure to use
use strict; use warnings;
As this can reveal a multitude of sins...

[ambrus]: Corion: Maybe I'm not explaining the situation clearly enough, maybe I'm just wrong and he's right and we can compute that data,
[ambrus]: but hopefully he just wants to think it through himself his way and understand why it's impossible rather than blindly accept my argument.

[Corion]: ambrus: Yeah, hopefully it's that
[1nickt]: I am stumped, maybe someone brainy can clear my mind?
