multicast (source,group) joins

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View

Is there a perl module which enables an application to perform an
(s,g) join?  IO:Socket::Multicast and IO::Socket::Multicast6 only seem
to support group joins and not (source,group) joins.  Am I missing
something or should I be looking for another module?

Looks like its not supported, but it also doesn't look too hard
to copy the existing mcast_add / mcast_drop routines and create
mcast_add_source / mcast_drop_source with the additional
parameter.  Microsoft has good docs on programming multicast.
Linux also supports SSM but of course has no up-to-date docs.

You can be a contributor!  Send your code to the module author
when you're done.
