[Techtalk] Perl Sockets Communication

I'm trying to write a pair of Perl programs, one to run as a CGI script 
from a Web server, and the other to run as a daemon process. I'd like them 
to communicate via a local Unix socket. I'm essentially following the 
recipe in the Camel Book, page 353. From the logging I've been able to 
perform, it seems that the client script connects to the daemon, but no 
information is passed through the socket.

Can anyone help? I can post code if desired.

                                                 --Kai MacTane

  And he simply smiled,/He told me not to worry:
  He told me just to take my time."
                                                 --Oingo Boingo,
