POE is great and its docs are getting better; sorry I can't point you to a specific sub-class. Also consider picking up a copy of Stein's Network Programming with Perl (I think he put all the code from the book online somewhere). You'll learn more about the guts that way. I was able to write a daemon chat server in a couple of days after picking it up.

    I checked relevant packages on Debian (my usual way to find popular non-webprogramming Perl modules not on perladvent). Danga::Socket looks good.

    Thanks, I browsed that book at a friend's place once and it seems nice.

    It is just such a problem-in-a-box that there should be multiple good solutions at CPAN.

    He sure did: "Network Programming with Perl" resources.

    And I wholeheartedly agree with your recommendation: I think this is one of the best books available on network programming, in any language.
