( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I am working on the assumption that the question is about hosting a socket server that writes out responses with GET requests to whoever logs in (why???). Perhaps I am misunderstanding the original question because the responses suggesting LWP::UserAgent don't seem to address it? Anyway, something like this might work:
#!/usr/bin/perl # startup with "scriptname localport redirect" use warnings; use strict; use IO::Socket; # port to listen on, stuff to write to clients my ( $localport, $redirect ) = ( $ARGV[0], $ARGV[1] ); # setting up server my $server = IO::Socket::INET->new( LocalPort => $localport, Proto => 'tcp', Listen => SOMAXCONN, Reuse => 1 ) || die "couldn't be a tcp server on port $localport:$@\n"; # status print qq{DAEMON LISTENING ON: $localport\n}; # new connections are instantiated like so while ( my ($client, $c_addr) = $server->accept()) { # collecting details about new connection my ($client_port, $c_ip) = sockaddr_in($c_addr); my $client_ipnum = inet_ntoa($c_ip); my $client_host = gethostbyaddr($c_ip, AF_INET); # printing client info print qq{INCOMING: $client_host, $client_ipnum\n}; # retrieving whatever the incoming connection is saying while(<$client>) { print; print $client $redirect; } }
Not (really) tested.

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.
