Hello,
I've found this in a book, but can't get it to work.

Code:
open_SOCKET($server, 80);
sub open_SOCKET {
  my ($server, $port) = @_;
  $port = getservbyname($port, 'tcp') if $port !~ /^[0-9]/;
  socket SOCKET, AF_INET, SOCK_STREAM, 0 or die "open socket: $!";
  connect(SOCKET, sockaddr_in($port, inet_aton($server)));
}

Error:
Argument "SOCK_STREAM" isn't numeric in socket
Argument "AF_INET" isn't numeric in socket

Output:
open socket: Unknown Error: 0x0000273c

Did you
 use Socket;
to get the proper definitions imported?

No I didn't...Claim you points, ozo.

But why weren't AF_INET and SOCK_STREAM undefined?

With
  no strict 'subs';
an undefiled bareword is treated as if it were a quoted string
(the -w switch will warn you about these)
