in reply to + UDP

G'day Wiggins,

This book was printed about 16 years ago and, as such, is now rather dated. Perl 5.4 was the current version around that time (see perlhist for specifics).

I had a quick scan through Chapter 13 (I assume that's what you're referring to) but neither g-pkg nor #New Server ... leapt out at me. Could you reference their page numbers and also give some indication of what you're having trouble understanding.

I did find the code for set_event_handler() (page 214). Most of the examples of its usage (e.g. connect(), disconnect(), send_later()) do not have a package name as the first argument. However, on page 205, you will find the call:

Msg->set_event_handler(\*STDIN, "read" => \&kbd_input);

I'm not sure if that helps. Again, some indication of what you're having trouble understanding would help in providing a better answer.

    Pieces of the code are in chapter 12 (Networking with Sockets), but the entire module that I am working with is in:

    It is always better to have seen your target for yourself, rather than depend upon someone else's description.
