accept ([



Performs the accept system call on a socket and returns a new object. The new object is created in the same class as the listen socket, unless pkg is specified. The object can be used to communicate with the client that was trying to connect. In a scalar context, the new socket is returned, or undef on failure. In an array context, a two-element array is returned containing the new socket and the peer address, or an empty list on failure.
