File::Send - Sending files over a socket efficiently and cross-platform
File::Send provides access to your operating system's
sendfile facility, or if that is not available uses File::Map and
syswrite to achieve a similarly efficient io function. It allows you to efficiently transfer data from one filehandle to another. Typically the source is a file on disk and the sink is a socket, and some operating systems may not even support other usage.
sendfile $out, $in, $count
This function sends up to
$count bytes from
$out. If $count isn't given, it will send all remaining bytes in $in.
$out can be a bareword, constant, scalar expression, typeglob, or a reference to a typeglob. It returns the number of bytes actually sent. On error it throws an exception describing the problem. This function is exported by default.
