Windows also has them (though they aren't commonly used), and quite
possibly others too.


        Will be fixed in next update.

Also, IO::Socket.close() is not an alternative for a shutdown()
method. They do subtly different things. IO::Socket should support
both IMHO.

The only difference I could see was that shutdown allows changing the readability and writeability. While I agree that this functionality should be exposed, (see my next update), I think that in the general case, .close() plus the other stuff I've done should be sufficient. Maybe shutdown() should be exposed somewhere, though.
