accept

See the current Perl documentation for accept.

Here is our local, out-dated (pre-5.6) version:


accept - accept an incoming socket connect



accept NEWSOCKET,GENERICSOCKET



Accepts an incoming socket connect, just as the accept(2) system call does. Returns the packed address if it succeeded, FALSE otherwise. See example in Sockets: Client/Server Communication.
