In case you havn't found the answer yet, here is a working script for you to test. If the script below dosn't work, you may have poor clients. I included a compatible client below the server.


#!/usr/bin/perl use IO::Socket; use IO::Select; my @sockets; my $machine_addr = ''; $main_sock = new IO::Socket::INET(LocalAddr=>$machine_addr, LocalPort=>1200, Proto=>'tcp', Listen=>3, Reuse=>1, ); die "Could not connect: $!" unless $main_sock; print "Starting Server\n"; $readable_handles = new IO::Select(); $readable_handles->add($main_sock); while (1) { ($new_readable) = IO::Select->select($readable_handles, undef, undef +, 0); foreach $sock (@$new_readable) { if ($sock == $main_sock) { $new_sock = $sock->accept(); $readable_handles->add($new_sock); } else { $buf = <$sock>; if ($buf) { print "$buf\n"; my @sockets = $readable_handles->can_write(); #print $sock "You sent $buf\n"; foreach my $sck(@sockets){print $sck "$buf\n";} } else { $readable_handles->remove($sock); close($sock); } } } } print "Terminating Server\n"; close $main_sock; getc();

Client: #######################################

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use IO::Socket; my ( $host, $port, $kidpid, $handle, $line ); ( $host, $port ) = ('',1200); my $name = shift || ''; if($name eq ''){print "What's your name?\n"} chomp ($name = <>); # create a tcp connection to the specified host and port $handle = IO::Socket::INET->new( Proto => "tcp", PeerAddr => $host, PeerPort => $port ) or die "can't connect to port $port on $host: $!"; $handle->autoflush(1); # so output gets there right away print STDERR "[Connected to $host:$port]\n"; # split the program into two processes, identical twins die "can't fork: $!" unless defined( $kidpid = fork() ); # the if{} block runs only in the parent process if ($kidpid) { # copy the socket to standard output while ( defined( $line = <$handle> ) ) { print STDOUT $line; } kill( "TERM", $kidpid ); # send SIGTERM to child } # the else{} block runs only in the child process else { # copy standard input to the socket while ( defined( $line = <STDIN> ) ) { print $handle "$name->$line"; } }

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.
