( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hi all,

I'm using Inline::Pdlpp (similar to Inline::C) on a Unix platform.

Inside the C code, I print some stuff out using printf().

This works fine normally, but when I redirect output to a file, the output disappears. I.e. when I do:

./perlscript.pl > output.txt &
the file output.txt does contain the text that was printed from Perl, but doesn't contain anything printed from C. The C output doesn't appear on the terminal either.

So I'm a bit mystified. Any clues?

(My script doesn't mess with STDOUT at all, I'm not doing anything peculiar. I'm a pretty inexperienced C programmer though, so maybe I'm missing something there - I don't need to explicitly select STDOUT in C, do I? I'm guessing not as when the script is run without redirecting the output, everything is fine).

Thanks and best wishes, andye


In reply to Inline: where did the output go? by andye
