in reply to open, sleep, & print together cause an error


did you try select on LOG before forcing autoflush ($|++;)?
UPDATE : Forget this post, I took too much time to submit this one. And the question was answered during the looooong time I took to check my answer. :-(

    Hi arhuman, this code ended up working, too. Now I have a couple of alternatives!:
    use strict; use warnings; open LOG,">foo.log" or die "can't open foo.log: $!"; my $selected = select(LOG); $|++; select($selected); while(1) { print LOG (localtime).": something\n"; sleep(5); }

    Thanks a lot, arhuman. -zeno
