My question is almost identical to the question asked in node #292856 -- but still slightly different. I wish to build a non-blocking socket. Apparently you can't in ActivePerl 5.8.3?
I refuse to accept that. I have tried these two methods (which both work great at home in my lunix):
$ioioio = new IO::Socket::INET( Proto => "udp", LocalPort => $port, Blocking => 0, ) or die "socket is dumb: $!"
That returns the unhelpful error "socket is dumb: at line something something."
I seem to get an error from this at least -- assuming I skip the "Blocking => 0" above.
fcntl($ioioio, F_SETFL, O_NONBLOCK);
It reports that my vendor has not defined F_SETFL.
(Sorry in advance, I searched a lot and didn't find much, but I can't imagine this hasn't been asked before.)
