in thread Problem handling 2 simultaneous socket streams

Should each of my stream subroutines use the sysread as well?

Your code is kind of complex for me to setup and run and test myself. However, if you are experiencing blocking problems, yes, switch to sysread. The other thing to try is to put a timeout in your select statement, I noticed you have none.

while(my @ready = $sockets->can_read) { #got data # add a timeout to your select while(my @ready = $sockets->can_read (.1) ) { } # 100 ms timeout

I'm not really a human, but I play one on earth.

    I created a new post for this problem but I think the basic problem now is creating another thread to do additional processing after a thread for monitoring STDIN has been created. Link below:
