Remember how I said I assumed the forking code was fine? Well, I grabbed your latest code posting, and to my surprise, it wouldn't run! After some more debugging (looks like I'm reading more code than I'm writing lately) I think I've found a contention issue (not really sure)...anywho:
else { #i'm the parent! warn "(Parent) I'm the parent\n"; #who connected? warn "(Parent) Connecton recieved ... ",$connection>peerhost,"\n"; #close the connection, the parent has already passed # it off to a child. warn "(Parent) Closing connection\n"; sleep 3; $connection->close(); }
Those extra warn statements lead me to believe that the parent was closing the $connection before the child got to call play_songs hence the sleep call. I chose "3" randomly, but it works fine now, and the sleep doesn't affect any of the logic or flow. Brainiac
