Another way to do it...

Here's some client code for a slower responding socket server, or when all the data doesn't show up at once, due to other issues. It sends a chunk, and waits for a response, up to N loops. Small sleeps might be safer than just looping, but hey, everyone works differently. You also could add checks for some termination sequence, or checks for the chunk meeting a fixed size requirement.


my $indata; my $remote = IO::Socket::INET->new( Proto => "tcp", PeerAddr =>'' , PeerPort => $self->{'30000'}, ); if( defined($remote) ) { my $readsize; print $remote $bigdata; my $done = 0; my $zreads =0; while (! $done) { my $tempdata=""; $tempdata = <$remote>; $readsize = length $tempdata; $zreads++ if ($readsize == 0); $done = 1 if ($zreads > 30); $in_data = $in_data . $tempdata; $done = 1 if ($tempdata eq "\n"); } close $remote; }

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
