in reply to How to disable buffering ?

well said by lakshmananindia ++

Why do you do select everytime on filehandles and then set $| to true, that is not a good idea
you can use IO::Handle or FileHandle modules to open the files and set autoflush on that handle to true, that will avoid using select everytime on different handles and setting $|=1

Instead of flushing the buffer can't we disable the buffering itself ?
buffering is our friend, saves a lot of time for us, so don't think our disabling buffering

And what will happen will not fail to happen, however much one may seek to prevent it. This is certain. The part of wisdom therefore is to stay quiet.
