in reply to Disconnect from Remote Server

Your system command ("tail -f") never returns, because it keeps the file open and tries to follow it forever. So "after executing the code" never happens, the code keeps running until it is killed. Try just using tail (possibly with "-n" to adjust the number of lines you get).


All dogma is stupid.

[tye]: okay, I know that Unix tracks the original login user (beyond "real UID"). What's a good way to get that in Perl?
