Well, i guess i could have every client that "connects" send a "yup, i'm here"-packet. However, would this mean that every client would have to send something to the server every time they want to receive something? Also, yes. My choice of words was inapropriate, since the data isn't really a stream. It's just so many small packets that it makes more sense to me to look at it as a stream, rather than packets, hehe. And as for reliability, it's not really important. The data to be sent is calculated very often, due to changes, so reception of all of them is far from critical, as long as a majority of them is received. Also, the data will only be sent over a LAN anyway.

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.
