in reply to Flushing the print buffers.

I guess you got a "Name "main::OUTPUT_HANDLE" used only once: possible typo" warning with the code you posted

Try

my $old_fh = select(STDOUT); $| = 1; select($old_fh);

  • The first select changes the default output filehandle to STDOUT and returns the current default output filehandle to be saved in $old_fh.
  • $|=1 turns on autoflushing on the current output filehandle
  • select($old_fh) restores the original output filehandle

Generally, if you just want to turn on autoflushing on STDOUT, a simple $|=1 will do.

    This worked nicely:
    my $old_fh = select(STDOUT); $| = 1; select($old_fh);
    Thanks!
