Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I have built a TK GUI Server that looks fine. My problem is that I have a client program that seeks info on the web and then sends a message to the GUI server. I created a socket on the server and it listens with the 'accept' method. The 'accept' method won't turn the process loose to allow me to rebuild parts of the GUI diplay after receiving data from the client. It just sits and continues to listen.
I understand that the MainLoop is looking for an event to handle but fileevent goes into an endless loop when I try to use that and anything else just locks up after the first client connection.
How can I make the client connecting to the server and the 'accept' method get handled as an event controlled by the MainLoop??
Thanks soooo much..
