in reply to socket help

Sorry! Posted in curiosity. But, now I've found. It is because of

print <$fh>;
Need to do like this.
$var = <fh>; print $var;

When we do something like 'print <fh>' it reads till EOF and prints entire content. Since, I've tried in sockets, I wouldn't have received EOF. So, the above code didn't work as expected.

    FWIW, this could also be achieved by saying

    print scalar <$fh>;

    (the <> operator (aka readline) behaves differently depending on context — which by default is "list" with print)

    I'm glad you figured it out. For reference in the future, it helps a lot if you can specify what your expected results are, and what your actual results are, to help diagnose the problem.

    Good job on fixing it though!
