chat2.pl just got real
20 years ago, I really wanted the chat2.pl domain name, to commemorate the one piece of code I ever contributed to the core. I even wrote the .pl administrators, and got no response.
Well, guess what I have now! chat2.pl!
Behold the wonder that is:
# XXX hardwired $PF_INET, $SOCK_STREAM, 'tcp'
# but who the heck would change these anyway? (:-)
$pf_inet = 2;
$sock_stream = 1;
$tcp_proto = 6;
Why, SystemV, and later Linux, didn't follow BSD numbers, I'll never know, but the comment was prophetic!
