in thread IO::Pipe hangs

On Solaris it works as well. Something wrong with Windows implementation?

    More of a platform difference -- a thread used instead of a fork.

    Use this instead:

    use strict; use warnings; my $cmd = "tasklist"; my $pid = open PIPE, "-|", $cmd or die $!; while (my $line = <PIPE> ) { print $line; last if $line =~ /^smss/; } close PIPE;

    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

    RIP Neil Armstrong
