Greetings Monks!

Short Version:How do I create an End of File character?

Long VersionI'm sending some YAML over a socket and I'm trying to figure out the best way to delimit the end of the YAML stream. I'm thinking of setting $/ to EOF on the reading end and sending an EOF after my YAML stream from the sending end. But, I don't know how to generate an EOF to send. I think EOF has the integer value of -1, but there's probably a more elgant portable way to do it, rather than just hard-coding it.

Thanks!

Update:Great responses everyone! ++ all round!

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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.
