The O word...

I thought select would be a good choice, since I can set a timeout. But, when I use it with STDIN, I always get a "Bad filehandle" error (in $!). That's why I asked for help specifically about select... (I knew I shouldn't have mentionned the user behind the keyboard)

    In the future, you should mention that up front when you insist on core features only, that way if someone is really ornery, they might just find a vile way to load the module they want as a bonus...

    $you = new YOU;
    honk() if $you->love(perl)
