in thread sleep in while loop

You may be getting bitten by buffering. Try this:
$|++; # force auto-flush (see perldoc perlvar) while (1) { if ($cond == 1) { print "1\n"; } else { print "2\n"; } sleep 10; }

Cheers,

    Thanks - buffering was biting my proverbial ***- by the way the code in the loop was not the actual code - sorry to confuse the issue.
