in thread Ask for STDIN but don't pause for it

I tried using the third example (IO::Select). However, this just ends up being an infinite loop printing the time. It never gets to reading STDIN.

    Works here. Are you hitting Enter to finish the line input? Otherwise use sysread.

      same problem sysread doesn't solve. It seems a matter of not blocking can_read. Did you manage to have it working?

        It works on Linux, it doesn't on Windows XP. Do you know why? thank you
