( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I have problem with the tests in HTTP-Server-Simple-0.44.

I am using:

  • Strawberry-perl-
  • Perl 5, version 12, subversion 2 (v5.12.2) built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread
  • Windows 7 Home Premium with Service Pack 1

This is setup_listener from HTTP-Server-Simple-0.44/lib/HTTP/Server/

sub setup_listener { my $self = shift; my $tcp = getprotobyname('tcp'); socket( HTTPDaemon, PF_INET, SOCK_STREAM, $tcp ) or croak "socket: + $!"; setsockopt( HTTPDaemon, SOL_SOCKET, SO_REUSEADDR, pack( "l", 1 ) ) or warn "setsockopt: $!"; bind( HTTPDaemon, sockaddr_in( $self->port(), ( $self->host ? inet_aton( $self->host ) : INADDR_ANY ) ) ) or croak "bind to @{[$self->host||'*']}:@{[$self->port]}: $!"; listen( HTTPDaemon, SOMAXCONN ) or croak "listen: $!"; }

When running some of tests, $self->host is undefined and the call to listen does not return (and sometimes get Windows 7 in blocked state). ($self->host with the value '' used by Plack does also not work.)

Adding this before bind is a workaround

$self->host('localhost') if ! defined $self->host; $self->host('localhost') if $self->host eq '';

Is this a bug in Windows or what is a proper solution?
