my perl app receives a buffer containing this format
where there are two items in data, of length
lengths and lengths respectively.
I have tried and tried to unpack this into 4 perl variables in a single unpack() call and failed.
I had to resort to two unpack()'s, the first to extract the lengths followed by something like
eval('($junk1 , $junk2, $data0, $data1) = unpack "ssA' . $data0_length
+ . "A" . $data1_length . '",$rcvd_buf;');
which works fine,
but can some kind Monk tell me how to do this in one unpack.
