I was checking out the source code for wscat and noticed it looked like a trivial port to Perl. Then I searched ddg for "wscat perl" and the first result took me to Net::WebSocket where the changes mention a " demo script" (which it doesn't install, wtf). After installing Net::WebSocket the script failed to run because IO::Events was not installed. After installing IO::Events it still failed because MockReader was not installed. Trying to install MockReader seemed to simply reinstall Net::WebSocket and didn't fix the problem. Then I noticed @INC was modified by so I had to mkdir 'lib' and put in a /lib relative to the location of After the hassle, which only took a minute or two, the demo script appears to function and the example given for the javascript version worked perfectly! I guess it would be a good idea for someone to clean up the installation mess and release something useful like App::wscat so you can use Perl!
