  • Hello clkao, I am also interested in using Microperl with some networking functions. How did you port the functionalities from Socket.pm to Perl? Did you write them in C? from what I read in your post, you seem to have rewritten in Perl... When you write that it's not such a good thing to do it from perl because it's platform-dependent, does this refer to the CPU type or to the OS itself. My goal is to add some local UNIX socket functionality (sockaddr_un) inside Microperl to be able to accept incoming co
    • Hello,

      my $sun_path_SIZE=2;
      my $sun_family_SIZE=108;



      #my $uaddr = sockaddr_un($SOCKFILE);   # Create a UNIX socket (local)... not used because this requires Socket.pm... instead, we will pack the sockaddr_un
