Question on the IO::Socket::INET module

Question on the IO::Socket::INET module
Message ID:
Good Morning,

I have a question on the IO::Socket::INET module...

I'm writing a small script on a Win32 platform which requires me to send a 
name (string) to
a unix server port listener I created using Perls POE module.  I was using 
net cat on a unix 
server to do this but do not have access to net cat or ownership of the 
Win32 server to get it. 
Which brings me back to my question:
Is there a way to use IO::Socket::INET on a Win32 system to emulate the 
following unix conmmand:
'echo "<name string>" | nc <server name> <port number>'  ?

Thank you for any advice or suggestions in advance.
Joe McTigue
