I don't know perl, so it is hard for me to check your work. The string 
you are building looks correct:

$string = 'user' . chr(0) . 'postgres' . chr(0) . 'database' . chr(0) . 
  'maach' . chr(0) . chr(0);

So the length of message should be = 4 + 4 + length($string)
That's 4 bytes for the message length, 4 bytes for the protocol 
version, and then the length of the string including the null bytes.

So write the total length, protocol version, and then your connect 
string. Any integer you write (Int16 and Int32 in the protocol) needs 
to be in network byte order (most significant byte first).
