The perl function listen does not return when host is undefined or 0.0.0.0.
Sometimes it also gets Windows 7 in unstable state and normal shut down is impossible.

Example​: This is setup_listener from HTTP-Server-Simple-0.44/lib/HTTP/Server/Simple.pm

sub setup_listener {
  my $self = shift;

  my $tcp = getprotobyname('tcp');
  socket( HTTPDaemon, PF_INET, SOCK_STREAM, $tcp ) or croak "socket​: $!";
  setsockopt( HTTPDaemon, SOL_SOCKET, SO_REUSEADDR, pack( "l", 1 ) )
  or warn "setsockopt​: $!";
  bind( HTTPDaemon,
  sockaddr_in(
  $self->port(),
  ( $self->host
  ? inet_aton( $self->host )
  : INADDR_ANY
  )
  )
  )
  or croak "bind to @​{[$self->host||'*']}​:@​{[$self->port]}​: $!";
  listen( HTTPDaemon, SOMAXCONN ) or croak "listen​: $!";
}

If $self->host is undefined or '0.0.0.0' the call to listen does not return.

Can the problem with Perl function 'listen' (assuming there *is* a problem) be demonstrated apart from this use in HTTP​::Server​::Simple?

The code provided is not sufficient to reproduce the problem (at least by a person not already familiar with that module).

Thank you very much.

From Bo.Johansson@lsn.se

Hej!

I have run​:

  use strict;
  use warnings;

  use HTTP​::Server​::Simple;

  my $server = HTTP​::Server​::Simple->new();
  $server->host( undef );
  #$server->host( '0.0.0.0' );
  $server->run();

Using "$server->host( undef );" or "$server->host( '0.0.0.0' );" works
with HTTP​::Server​::Simple version 0.51!

Best regards

Thank you very much.

I modified HTTP​::Server​::Simple​::setup_listener() to capture the return value of 'listen()' before returning from the method.

#####
  my $rv = listen( HTTPDaemon, SOMAXCONN ) or croak "listen​: $!";
  return $rv;
#####

I then called your program -- with '$server->host(undef)' -- with the perl debugger and stepped through to the lines above. The value of '$rv' is '1', so listen() returned a true value.

Where the program *did* hang was in this part of subroutine '_default_run(()'​:

#####
  while ($SERVER_SHOULD_RUN) {
  local $SIG{PIPE} = 'IGNORE'; # If we don't ignore SIGPIPE, a
  # client closing the connection before we
  # finish sending will cause the server to exit
  while ( accept( my $remote = new FileHandle, HTTPDaemon ) ) {
#####

The program hung on the 2nd 'while' loop. When I hit Ctrl-C, the program resumed at the 'local $SIG{PIPE}...' line.
