Actually, || is not a bit-wise operator.

The reason that my statements like this:

socket $sock, PF_INET, SOCK_STREAM, $proto || die $!;

...aren't dying properly is because , has lower operator precedence than ||. The or operator has the lowest precedence. See the perlop docs.

This means that statement was evaluated like this:

socket $sock, PF_INET, SOCK_STREAM, ($proto || die $!);

...instead of like this:

socket ($sock, PF_INET, SOCK_STREAM, $proto) || die $!;

And this is now making me question the wisdom of PBP's rules of:

Don't use unnecessary parentheses for builtins and "honorary" builtins.
Because I was thinking that functions in the Socket module were essentially honorary builtins.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
