On page 604 of the Perl CookBook it sais:

"or create a socket by hand for better control" 

it did not seem like it was much more trouble -- and
only a few more lines of code --than using than
use IO:Socket, so off I went.

Was this a misguided decision on my part?

Why not use HTTP, and use the

I'm looking up HTTP in my perl books right now.

A people that values its privileges above its principles soon loses both.
