I use the <> operator to read data from a socket:
use strict; use IO::Socket; my $host = 'myhost.mysite.org'; my $port = 7530; my $sock = new IO::Socket::INET(PeerAddr => $host, PeerPort => $port, Proto => 'tcp'); die "cannot open socket" unless ($sock); #send a command to the server my $cmd = "MYGET\n"; print $sock $cmd; # print server response while (<$sock>) { print; } close $sock;
