    Sorry, I forgot to mention that I did try $|=1 already. It doesn't work!

    [gargle@vlds204 reporting]$ cat test.pl #!/usr/bin/perl use Modern::Perl; use Term::Prompt; my $mypass = prompt( 'x', "password:", '', '' ); $|=1; say "alfa"; say "beta"; [gargle@vlds204 reporting]$ ./test.pl | tee test.txt x password: alfabeta[gargle@vlds204 reporting]$ ./test.pl password: x alfa beta [gargle@vlds204 reporting]$

    I'm starting to think my perl install is messed up. Are there any unit tests I can run?

    if ( 1 ) { $postman->ring() for (1..2); }

      Doesn't work how? What is it you're expecting to happen that didn't happen?

      I'm starting to think my perl install is messed up.

      I doubt your install is messed up. You could try export  TERM=dumb   test.pl

      Are there any unit tests I can run?

      Sure, but they're not usually installed. You could verify your install with perlivp, but I doubt that'll help with this problem.

    What I find weird is that the '\n' are gone when I pipe or use redirection. So come these two runs don't give the same output, that's what I would like to know :
    [gargle@vlds204 reporting]$ ./test.pl password: x alfa beta
    [gargle@vlds204 reporting]$ ./test.pl | tee test.txt x password: alfabeta[gargle@vlds204 reporting]$ [gargle@vlds204 reporting]$

    if ( 1 ) { $postman->ring() for (1..2); }
