Treehunter has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I have been looking into using sockets with Perl because I really want to learn as much as I can about perl. Currently I'm attempting to learn sockets. I have the basics of IO::Socket down. Now to get multipul client's to connect from what I understand requires eather IO::Select; or fork(); apparently fork eats up processor though. Eather way I have copied example scripts and always end up with the same issue. They don't print any of the data that I send to them. If some one could give me a link to a very well explained IO::Socket with IO::Select or forking and or write a script with very well explained comments it would be appriciated.
I apologize for not posting what I have tried in the past, generally when I go looking for examples and tutorials it's not at home. Mainly in class when I'm doing nothing important I tend to look up information on perl. Then I end up deleting the examples in frustration or never bringing them home. Thank your for the Links I'll give them a try.
