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

merlyn,
This is not warez. 'Warez' imlies illegally acquired software, i.e. "D00d, come check out my 1337 ftp site. It's got lots of warez like ISOs of all of the M$ software you can imagine." And as much as some people would like it be, port scanning is not illegal. At times, it can come in handy. It can also be used to "case" a server for possible weaknesses. Would a "script kiddie" use a perl port scanner? I doubt it. Nmap is much better suited for their usage. This looks like a legit attempt at learning.

/dev/null,
I commend you for having the guts to post this. I can't believe that you would try to get into a flamefest. This is not the kind of thing that I come here to read.

IANA maintains a list of port numbers. It is possible to have a port number as high as 65535. So I am curious why you choose to go up to 65000. Also, you are only scanning for TCP ports. Why not go all out and scan for UDP ports as well?

Update: I forgot to mention that I'm not voting on the flamefest posts. Just please! Please! Don't do it again!
