in thread IPC::Open3 woes
I've been trying your example, and it works great on linux (perl 5.6.1), but doesn't work on win2k (activestate perl 5.8.0).
I've managed to track it down as far as the line where you
call can_read, which for some odd reason appears to cause the
loop to exit immediately (probably returning undef).
Calling count() immediately before the can_read shows that
there are still 2 file handles.
I'm a bit stuck on this one, so if anyone has any ideas,
they'd be appreciated.
