( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
At the moment I am trying to set up a simple socket program on the server side (I am doing this on a remote server, which makes things a little more difficult). I have been going through the few tutorials that I can find, experimenting with the sockets, and have had limited success in sending and receiving data. The big problem I have had is that once I get the program running, it won't completely stop it seems. A close($sock) seems to close the sockets functions completely, but when I try to run it again on the same port, I get a "IO::Socket::INET: Address already in use..." error. It is becoming very frustrating now... Here's the heart of my code for reference:
my $sock = new IO::Socket::INET ( LocalAddr => 'localhost', LocalPort => 1209, Proto => 'tcp', Listen => 1, Reuse => 1, ); die "$!" unless $sock; my $new_sock = $sock->accept(); close ($sock);
It is being ran on a Unix machine if that makes any difference.

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
