in reply to How to shut down UNIX sockets?

i think what you want to do is: send one message and wait for the reply then again reply to reply received previously

you can use I/O multiplexing um.... that is to say you can use IO::Select module's can_read() and can_write() functions..... they check whether the socket is ready for reading or writing..... better than forking... check out the documentation of IO::Select here

    Yes, that's what I want to do generally, and I'm having a fair amount of trouble, but I'm not ready to ask for help yet. The problem I asked about was specifically whether IO::Socket::UNIX provides any clean way to exit such that it can start again without failing with EADDRINUSE. I could write the code to unlink the FIFOs if they exist, but then I have to worry about concurrency and so forth.

    print pack("A25",pack("V*",map{1919242272+$_}(34481450,-49737472,6228,0,-285028276,6979,-1380265972)))
      you can look at one of my meditations on chat server....
      and for cleaning the sockets, IO::Select provides the select() function that can specify what you want your socket to do....

      "keep it simple.... stupid :D"
