Subject: AnyEvent::Socket tcp_connect bind()
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 162b
On multihomed hosts, it is sometimes desired to connect to remote hosts using a specific address. tcp_connect doesn't allow to specify a bind address to do this.

Hi! You sent a possible bug report on or via rt.cpan.org. Please read this mail carefully if you want to be heard. Most likely, your report will be ignored. Please close the ticket again and sent it to the official contact address for the module in question (or send it to rt.cpan.org@schmorp.de). Why is this necessary? rt.cpan.org has many deficiencies which makes it tedious and hard to use, increasing the workload on the people who provide all the perl modules you probably appreciate (and that is really to be avoided - module authors should be able to invest all their time into improving their modules and not fighting with rt.cpan.org's bugs). Still, for some people, rt.cpan.org is useful to have, and some people even like it and really want to use it. That is fine, too. Unfortunately, the designers of rt.cpan.org didn't make their "service" optional - you can neither opt-in nor opt-out of rt.cpan.org as a module author. Just like a spammer, rt.cpan.org forces its "service" (whether wanted or unwanted) on everybody. Just like a spammer, they don't care for the people they actively hurt. Just like a spammer, they don't don't care to fix these issues and make their "service" ethically acceptable. You cannot even configure it to redirect tickets to somewhere else. Unfortunately, ignoring rt.cpan.org is not an option either: for people reporting possible bugs there is no indication that their report will be ignored, and for module authors it means they miss possibly vital bug reports (and of course it's a great impression if rt.cpan.org has lots of bug reports that are unanswered, making a module unmaintained when in fact the opposite might be true). This is why it is important that you delete/resolve your ticket. I am sorry that this wasted a bit of your time, but please understand that I am just as much a victim as you are - the problem is the unethical stance of the rt.cpan.org providers who force their "service" on everybody. Please redirect your bug report as stated in the beginning of this mail, and please consider petitioning the rt.cpan.org providers to stop their unethical behaviour and allow opt-in, opt-out, or some redirect option. Thanks a lot, Marc Lehmann <rt.cpan.org@schmorp.de>
