Hello, I am trying to test one application which listen on the given multicast address (231.10.10.111) on the port 1111 using the UDP protocol. I would like to write a simple perl one liner which would send some data like "perl is beautiful" on 239.10.10.111:1111 so that I can verify the connectivity. Kindly suggest a sample code.

Just Another Novice Perl Programmer. Thanks!

It's not exactly oneliner, but...

use IO::Socket::INET;
$sock = IO::Socket::INET->new(PeerAddr => '231.10.10.111',
                                 PeerPort => '1111',
                                 Proto    => 'udp');
$sock->send("perl is beautiful");
