weismat has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I am using Log4Perl and Log4Net and realized today that Log4Net supports a telnetAppender which is not supported by log4Perl and which also exists in the original log4Java.
The appender basically allows telnet connections to the logging from any remote hosts which is very handy for long running tasks.
Is there any framework which exists for telnet/tcp servers (Net::EasyTCP looks appealing) which I could use or would you recommend me to use IO::Socket solely to keep the number of dependencies low?
