I think you'll have to add code to your main loop to handle the packet when it comes in, and pass it off to the subroutine that can deal with it. Here's some pseudocode:

MainLoop: while ($packet = getpacket()) { if ($packet == RESPONSE_PACKET) { deal_with_response(); } else { dispatch_packet(); } } sub dispatch_packet { my $packet = shift; if ($packet == NORMAL_PACKET) { ordinary_handler(); } elsif ($packet == SPECIAL_PACKET) { special_handler(); } } sub ordinary_handler { whatever(); } sub special_handler { ask_for_info(); # save the state so that we can deal # with the response later save_state(); } sub deal_with_response { # get the saved state and deal with the response load_state(); talk_to_the_hand(); } __END__

The implementation details are left as an exercise for the reader.

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.
