Perl TCP

I want to ask for help. Because that is the working smarter not harder.
I don't want to ask for help. Because I don't want to be a bother to
someone that doesn't just inherently know how to do it with almost no
effort. I mean, I can figure it out without help. It will just likely
take me a few hours (6+), while someone that "knows" can likely whip a
sample up in 30 minutes to an 1 hour.

The task is a Perl TCP listener (server), that can dynamically respond
to the input.
Overly simple example. If it gets "1" it can respond with "2". If it
gets "2" it responds with "5". The data transfer in or out will be
less than 1Kb, less than 1024 bytes.
I need it to capable of async or non-blocking. So that a connection
remaining open doesn't prevent second connection from succeeding. I
also prefer all the code to be in a single file, and that is only
because I believe it should be less than 200 lines. Probably around
100 lines or less.

Meanwhile, I will go back to other things for now. And later begin
burning a few hours trying to cobble something together.

=============================================================== From: Unkmar ------------------------------------------------------ Never mind, I got it. I got everything I was hoping for except the async portion, but I can live without it. Just as I stated. It took me more than 8 hours. It comes in at 142 lines. 89 Lines of code. 25 Lines are comments. 28 are blank lines. As any reasonable programmer knows, the comments and blank lines are for readability. -- Lucius L. Hilley III
