Why doesn't my sockets program work under System V (Solaris)? What does the error message "Protocol not supported" mean?

Current Perl documentation can be found at perldoc.perl.org.

Here is our local, out-dated (pre-5.6) version:

Some Sys-V based systems, notably Solaris 2.X, redefined some of the standard socket constants. Since these were constant across all architectures, they were often hardwired into perl code. The proper way to deal with this is to ``use Socket'' to get the correct values.

Note that even though SunOS and Solaris are binary compatible, these values are different. Go figure.

[Corion]: ambrus: "the other" ;) To me, "normal" for GUIs means (0,0) is left-upper corner of the monitor/window. But for Prima, the lower-left corner it is ;)
[Corion]: Which would be OK for mathematics and paper, for me ;)
[ambrus]: Ok, so Prima has a postscript-like coordinate system
[Corion]: ambrus: Yes, which kinda makes sense because Prima also has Postscript output or something, I think
